Anti-Social Behaviour

Anti-social behaviour can include the following:

  • Harassment
  • Verbal or Physical abuse
  • Vandalism and graffiti
  • Noise Nuisance
  • Selling drugs
  • Drinking whilst underage
  • Litter and rubbish dumping
  • Nuisance driving

The East Cambridgeshire Community Safety Partnership recognises that anti-social behaviour can significantly reduce the quality of life of residents and has therefore made this one of its priorities and has an appointed Anti-Social Behaviour Co-ordinator to help tackle individuals causing these types of problems. The ASB Coordinator can take out measures such as 'Anti-Social Behaviour Orders' and 'Acceptable Behaviour Contracts' against individuals who are causing problems. We currently have a success rate of around 70%.

What Should I do if I witness or am a victim of Anti-Social Behaviour (ASB)?

In the first instance you should report any incidents to the Police on 101 (non-emergency number)* *In an emergency, if a crime is being committed or a life is in danger, always dial 999

Remember, in order for us to help stop anti-social behaviour we need you to report incidents to us. All information will be treated confidentially, and personal details will not be disclosed unless we have your permission.

Community Trigger

The Anti Social Behaviour, Crime and Policing Act 2014 brought in a new, additional measure for people who have been the victims of repeat ASB.  This legislation makes it easier for a victim or someone acting on their behalf, to make an application to have their case reviewed.  A review will look at every aspect of the specific case to establish whether all available and appropriate actions were carried out.
