As part of Anti-Social Behaviour (ASB) Awareness Week we’ll be encouraging people to talk about anti-social behaviour and what we’re doing about it.
Staff will be at Tŷ Pawb between 11am and 1pm on Wednesday July 5.
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 can, and has, been 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 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 affect any of us and agencies are there to help when behaviour causes nuisance, alarm and distress to those around them.
“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.”
