The Community Trigger allows victims of persistent anti-social behaviour, who have previously reported incidents to one or more agencies, to request a review of their case where they feel the actions taken have not been adequate.
Activating the Community Trigger will bring relevant agencies together to share information, review the actions that have been taken and try to reach a solution that will hopefully prevent similar incidents from happening again. For the purposes of the Community Trigger, anti-social behaviour is defined as 'behaviour causing harassment, alarm or distress to persons not of the same household'.
Who can use the Community Trigger?
- Victims of anti-social behaviour
- Someone representing a victim such as a carer, councillor or family member. Consent must be gained from the victim prior to the application.
- Communities or businesses
If you have not previously reported the anti-social behaviour:
If you have been a victim of anti-social behaviour but have not reported the incidents to anyone, you will not be eligible to activate the trigger.
