Unacceptable Behaviour Warning Letters
Where a person is discovered to be committing anti-social behaviour, a letter is usually delivered to them, or in the case of a young person the parent. This is a first warning to that person to cease the behaviour and informs you of the nature and consequences of that behaviour.
As part of the warning the perpetrator is asked to:
- Refrain from behaving in an anti-social manner
- Not to act in any way which may cause a nuisance to other members of the community, or which may cause them to feel harassed, alarmed or distressed
- Consider the impact of their behaviour on members of the community, respect people, their property and public places
It informs them that their conduct will continue to be monitored.
The letter can be delivered by a member of the Community Safety Team or by an officer from the Neighbourhood Policing Team.
Anti-social behaviour is a serious matter and, should a person continue with this type of behaviour, they may be subject to other actions such as Acceptable Behaviour Contracts, Injunctions, Possession of property or eviction, or Anti-Social Behaviour Orders.
