Tackling anti-social behaviour (ASB) is a matter of priority for Northamptonshire Police, and as part of the UK’s first national ASB awareness week we’re sharing some advice on how to report it, and who to.
Any ASB incident that is happening right now, where you feel frightened for yourself or someone else, or where property is being damaged, is an emergency so always call 999 to report to the police.
Similarly, if you are vulnerable, or are calling on behalf of someone who is, and are being directly targeted by the ASB with the fear that you are at imminent risk, please call 999 immediately.
Outside of issues happening at the time, non-emergency reports of ASB affecting your or others’ quality of life can be made to the police by calling 101 or reporting online at www.northants.police.uk/ro.
When you call the police to report ASB, we need to get as much information as possible from you so we can accurately assess the situation – this might feel frustrating, but here are a few points to help you understand why we need to do this.
If the ASB issue centres around noise, fly tipping or complaints related to dogs, you should report it to your local council via their website.
It is also worth reporting ASB issues to social housing providers, as some have ASB teams to support their tenants with housing-related complaints.
Where you are unable or cannot make a report about ASB yourself, such as where there is a language barrier, let a trusted person or group know about what is going on, so they can report it for you, either to us or the relevant partner agency.
