We want you, your family and neighbours to enjoy living in your home and community.
We take reports of antisocial behaviour very seriously and will take the necessary steps to protect residents.
If a crime is taking place or if you feel that you or someone else is in immediate danger, always call 999.
If it is a non-emergency or you would like to report antisocial behaviour to the police, please call 101 or contact the Safer Neighbourhood Team.

We can provide you with support such as interpreters and assistance if the case goes to court. We will stay in regular contact with you and make sure you know what we are doing.
