North Worcestershire Community Safety Partnership
Taking Action Against Anti-Social Behaviour
Anti Social Behaviour (ASB) can be a real problem for some
communities and the North Worcestershire Community Safety
Partnership is committed to tackling ASB and helping the residents
of the district to feel safe.
What Can We Do?
Tackling ASB effectively requires many local agencies to work
together and the North Worcestershire Community Safety
Partnership enables Councils, Police, Housing Associations,
Probation, Fire and Health services and other organisations to work
effectively to reduce and prevent ASB.
When ASB happens, organisations of
the North Worcestershire Community Safety Partnership can
help. We can use a range of tools and powers to tackle ASB and will
take enforcement powers to stop it. This is why, when we receive
complaints of ASB, we ask people to record what they see, when they
see it, who they see and where they see it. This information is
vital. By taking a stand against ASB, together we can stop it.
In addition to responding to complaints of
ASB, our partnership organisations also spend a lot of time out in
the community. This allows us to identify emerging problems,
understand our communities’ needs and provide reassurance that
issues are being dealt with.
We all want our neighbourhoods to be free from
ASB and when ASB happens, we all want it dealt with so that people
can feel safe.
What Can You Do?
only take action against ASB if we are aware it is happening. If
you do experience ASB it is important that you report it; don’t
rely on someone else. We would rather have 10 people call us about
the same incident than no calls at all. We can only take action
when issues are reported.
If you are experiencing ASB it is important
you report it and when you do, there are Minimum Standards you can
expect from our organisations when dealing with your issues.
