Anti-Social Behaviour Anti-social behaviour is always a priority for us at the Neighbourhood Team. We are aware of the impact anti-social behaviour can have on people and communities blighted by the inconsiderate behaviour of others. We work very closely with our partners to resolve problems and ensure those people engaging in anti-social behaviour are challenged and held to account. We are keen to hear from anyone that have concerns about anti-social behaviour and encourage people to report via 101, our non-emergency contact number. If you are unsure whether the problem you wish to report is a Police matter then please follow this link for guidance; To keep your home safe: - Use timer switches on lights to make it look as if your home is occupied. - Ensure all doors and windows are secure when you leave and when you go to bed. - If possible use security lighting at the front and back of your property. - Make sure all garden tools and ladders are locked away when not being used. - Use a good quality lock on any garden sheds and outhouses. - Make a note of all makes, models and serial numbers of expensive items in your home. - Create a FREE and secure inventory of all your personal property at - If you notice anything suspicious in your neighbourhood report it on 101.
