(Also known as a Community Trigger)
A measure designed to give victims and communities a way to demand effective action by requesting a review of their ASB case.
The Anti-social Behaviour, Crime and Policing Act 2014 introduced the Community Trigger referred to as Anti-social behaviour case review which is a process that victims and communities can use to ask agencies to deal with persistent anti-social behaviour through a review process and appeal stage.
For the purpose of the ASB Review anti-social behaviour is defined as behaviour that is likely to cause harassment, alarm or distress to any member of the public.
The Trigger does not replace the complaints procedures of an individual organisation, or business, or your opportunity to complain to the Local Government Ombudsman or Independent Police Complaints Commission.
The ASB Case Review can be requested if you have;
