Before making a report about anti-social behaviour, you can try some of the following:

  • try speaking to the people that are causing the problem in a calm manner - they might not realise that it is affecting you
  • contact neighbours who may also be concerned and are prepared to help
  • keep a diary of events (including the date, time and problem) this can be vital intelligence in helping to support prosecutions or interventions
  • contact your local police (dial 101 if it is not an emergency)
  • consider launching a Neighbourhood Watch Scheme
