OTHER ANTI-SOCIAL BEHAVIOUR

There are many different types of anti-social behaviour.  Early intervention in most anti-social behaviour works. Report issues in your local area.  Agencies want to address them quickly before they get worse. They have legal tools to do that quickly.

There is a lot of behaviour that is caused by alcohol.  People who are drunk can behave anti-socially.  Disorder and alcohol often go hand in hand.  However, sometimes the behaviour does not involve alcohol.  Behaviour that causes disorder includes:

bullet    Disputes among neighbours
bullet    Rowdy or inconsiderate behaviour
bullet    Drinking alcohol in the streets
bullet    Substance misuse such as glue sniffing
bullet    Setting off fireworks in a dangerous way
bullet    Riding motorbikes on public footpaths

Follow our Act Now! Guide to find out the right way to report each of these.

bullet    Drug dealers on the streets or in local premises
bullet    Vehicle misuse such as revving car engines, racing, wheel spinning and horn sounding
