Anti Social Behaviour

As part of Anti Social Behaviour (ASB) Awareness Week we’re inviting you to an event at Tŷ Pawb on Thursday 21st July between 12pm and 2pm when members of the Community Safety Partnership will be present to show you what we do here in Wrexham to reduce incidences of ASB.

The Community Safety Partnership is made up of representatives from ourselves, North Wales Police, Betsi Cadwaladr University health Board, North Wales Fire and Rescue Service and Wales Probation. The partnership also includes representatives from third sector voluntary organisations.

As a general rule when ASB is reported as being a problem interventions will always be offered to try to remedy problem behaviour. But if this isn’t taken up then there’s lots of legislation that the partnership can, and has used.

These interventions have included Criminal Behaviour Orders (CBO’s), Community Protection Warnings and Notices (CPN’s) against offenders, Closure Orders on properties and Public Space Protection Orders (PSPO’s) in hotspot locations.

Victims of persistent anti-social behaviour (ASB) have the right to request a case review in certain circumstances. The Community Trigger is a tool used to review specific cases. Its aim is to make sure that appropriate levels of enforcement and support are either in place, or have been considered.

Any person who has reported three incidents of anti-social behaviour within a six month period can raise a Community Trigger and request a case review for consideration. You can read more about this here.

Cllr Paul Roberts, Lead member for Partnerships and Community Safety, said, “Anti Social Behaviour can cause residents and visitors to feel uncomfortable or sometimes even intimidated when it takes place.

“I encourage everyone who is able to go along to this event to see what goes on in the background when it’s reported, how it’s being tackled and how to report it so appropriate action can be taken.”
