Got a problem with anti-social behaviour but not sure who to report it to?
Our neighbourhood officers and PCSOs work with residents and local organisations to find solutions to anti-social behaviour and other local issues.
There are several different types of anti-social behaviour. Some are dealt with by police, some by your local council and some by other agencies.
Please have a look at our checklist so see which organisation to contact for help.
Make a police report if you experience:
- Dealing/taking of drugs and drinking alcohol in the street
- Gangs and youths drinking in parks
- Dangerous dogs
- Misuse of fireworks
- Nuisance driving including quad bikes
Make a report to your local council if you experience:
- Flytipping/littering/waste on land
- Dog fouling
- Abandoned vehicles
- Stray dogs
- Nuisance noise
- Parking issues (except for obstructions)
- Found syringes
