Derbyshire is supporting the SAY NO TO ASB campaign

Alert message sent 27/10/2021 08:02:00

Information sent on behalf of Derbyshire Constabulary


Anti-social behaviour (ASB) incidents have increased over the last three years, with 45% of people saying that ASB is a problem where they live, according to RESOLVE's 2021 report. 

The term anti-social behaviour is used to describe the day-to-day incidents of crime, nuisance and disorder. It’s an activity that can make people’s lives a misery and can have a severe impact on the local community, ranging from litter and vandalism, to public drunkenness or aggressive dogs, to noisy or abusive neighbours.

Between 25 October and 21 November, Neighbourhood Watch has launched a 'SAY NO TO ASB' campaign, with the aim in tackling anti-social behaviour in local communities. For further information on their campaign, please visit: https://www.ourwatch.org.uk/asb.  

ASB Resources

Earlier this year, organisations from across Derbyshire joined together in creating an Anti-Social Behaviour Hub for our county, which can be found here: Derbyshire ASB Hub

This online toolkit features a great range of information on what anti-social behaviour is, which agency to report it to, how organisations tackle these behaviours and support that is available.

Reporting anti-social behaviour

Reporting antisocial behaviour early on is important to prevent it from escalating. 

Anti-social behaviour covers a wide range of problems and because of this, the agency that you should speak to varies, such as your local council, housing association or the police.

For a breakdown of these reporting methods, please visit the Safer Derbyshire website.

Support
