South Leicester Police - Anti-Social Behaviour

Alert message sent 07/07/2020 09:03:00

Information sent on behalf of Leicestershire Police

Dear Neighbourhood Link member,

Leicestershire Police are working in partnership with your local council and other agencies to tackle anti-social behaviour and reduce crime.

Everyone has the right to feel and be safe in their home and community. With our partnership agencies, we are committed to doing everything we can to help you if you are experiencing problems.

What is Anti-Social Behaviour (ASB)?
ASB is any activity which causes, or is likely to cause harassment, alarm or distress to one or more people not of the same household.

Some examples include:
• vandalism, graffiti and fly-posting
• nuisance neighbours
• intimidating groups taking over public spaces
• anti-social drinking
• misuse of fireworks
• reckless driving of mini-motos, quad bikes and other vehicles.

Anti-social behaviour is not:
• children playing
• neighbours doing DIY (at reasonable times of the day)
• groups of people in public - unless they are being rowdy, abusive, causing damage or committing crimes
• noise caused by everyday living 
• religious or cultural practice.

Every call is reviewed and action can be taken which may include a telephone call or visit from a Police Officer, Police Community Support Officer or Council Officer with the aim of:
• working with you to ensure you are safe
• patrolling the area and dealing with any further incidents
• gathering evidence and speaking to witnesses
• taking any appropriate steps to resolve the problem
• ensuring any relevant departments of local council are updated of the incident, if applicable.

The officer dealing with your report will also be able to discuss some crime prevention advice and tips on improving your home and personal security, if you feel you would benefit from this.

There are many different ways that police and partner agencies can deal with ASB, including:
• advice given to perpetrators
• warning letters given to perpetrators
• asking the perpetrator to sign an acceptable behaviour contract
• issuing a community protection notice, a breach of which is a criminal offence.

Keep a record
To assist with any investigation, please try to keep an accurate record of dates, times and incident details. It is still important that you report incidents as and when they happen by calling 101.

Things to keep a note of:
• exact time, date and location of the incident;
• descriptions of any people involved (height, build, hair colour, clothing);
• what they were doing and how their actions affected you and/or others;
• any other witnesses

If you are experiencing Anti-Social Behaviour (ASB) please call 101 to report.

Many thanks,

South Leicester Police
