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:
Disputes among neighbours
Rowdy or inconsiderate behaviour
Drinking alcohol in the streets
Substance misuse such as glue sniffing
Setting off fireworks in a dangerous way
Riding motorbikes on public footpaths
Vandalism and criminal damage
Follow our Act Now! Guide to find out the right way to report each of these. Sometimes the police is the appropriate agency (for example dangerous motorbike riding, vandalism) and our guide will indicate when you should call 999 and when you should call the non-emergency 101 number. For other situations, the council will be more appropriate (for example disputes between council tenants over boundaries).
Other Crime and Disorder
Report the following to the Police. They are crimes but usually included within definitions of anti-social behaviour:
Prostitution and premises being used for prostitution
Drug dealers on the streets or in local premises
Vehicle misuse such as revving car engines, racing, wheel spinning and horn sounding
Please note these are not comprehensive lists.
