ASB Case Review (Community Trigger)
Community Triggers came into effect in 2014 under the Anti-Social Behaviour, Crime and Policing Act 2014. They give victims of persistent ASB the opportunity to request a review of the actions taken by the agencies involved, when they feel that the actions taken have not been adequate to resolve the problem.
ASB Case Review (Community Trigger) is not used to:
- report ASB in the first instance
- report general acts of crime, including hate crime
- make a specific complaint about the handling of a case
How can I request a review?
To request a review there must have been:
- at least three reports from one person, within a six month period, or
- five reports from different people, within a six month period, of a problem that is not currently being investigated
You must have reported ASB within one month of the alleged behaviour taking place, and you must make the application for the community trigger review within 6 months of the report of anti social behaviour.
For the period of 2018/19, one application for an ASB case review was received and the community trigger invoked. An ASB case review was carried out which resulted in recommendations being made.
For the period of 2019/20, one application for an ASB case review was received and the community trigger invoked. An ASB case review was carried out and advice was given.
For the period 2020/21, there were two applications for an ASB case review, both of which were invoked. In both instances a number of ASB Case Review meetings were held and action plans/recommendations put in place.
