Anti-social behaviour

Anti-social behaviour is committed by a small fraction of the population but has a damaging impact on communities, local businesses and visitors to the area. We know it can’t be tackled in isolation; we work with the Community Safety Partnership to tackle it - meaning communities can feel safer in their neighbourhoods.

We will intervene when low level anti-social behaviour is identified and address it. If interventions do not stop it, we may take appropriate enforcement action. All complaints of anti-social behaviour will be taken seriously and recorded immediately.

You have the option of remaining anonymous, although if we have no means of contacting you, the investigation may be adversely affected by lack of evidence. You can remain anonymous but still leave a contact number such as a mobile, so we can contact you to ask any further questions or update you where necessary. After investigation we will gather any evidence and take any necessary action where possible.

The Anti-social Behaviour, Crime and Policing Act 2014 includes a new measure which is designed to give victims and communities a say in the way anti-social behaviour is dealt with. The Community Trigger or ASB Case Review gives victims the ability to require action, starting with a review of their case if certain criteria are met.

Each case is assessed on its own merits. There may be situations where behaviour reported does not exceed reasonable levels. In such cases, our involvement may be limited to providing advice and assistance. Such situations may include:

  • Children falling out with each other
  • People carrying out DIY jobs unless at unreasonable hours
  • People carrying out day to day activities in their own home unless at unreasonable hours
  • Noise of children playing in their own home
  • Children playing ball games in the street unless those playing ball are taking part in other more serious nuisance such as verbal abuse, playing at unreasonable hours or criminal damage.


If the nuisance is happening at the present time and is affecting your quality of life please report it to Tamworth Police on 101. Only dial 999 when:
