What else we do to help
We work closely with our partners to identify 'hot spots' and develop strategies to prevent anti-social behaviour.
- Investigate serious allegations of anti-social behaviour and hate crime
- Reassure communities and individuals offering advice and support to everyone involved
- Protect victims, witnesses and the community
- Prevent further anti-social behaviour
- Promote community safety for all
- Work with the perpetrators to prevent further recurrences of anti-social behaviour
- Identify the root causes of the anti-social behaviour
We will also:
- Treat your complaint in confidence and with sensitivity
- Work with schools to promote diversionary activities and provide crime awareness workshops
- Liaise closely with other council services and outside agencies to ensure continuity of attention
- Recognise the need to engage with parents of young people within the ASB process
We like to take an active role in getting information, activities and presentations into schools. We have supported and funded the Prison Me No Way!!! trust throughout the district which is always a great success. We engage with people like Charlotte who is an ex heroin addict and who tells her story to put young people off going down a substance abuse route. We have a policeman who delivers knife crime awareness, and we will also visit schools to talk about anti-social behaviour and its effects on their surroundings. Please contact us if you think we can help with your Community and Citizenship delivery plans.
