Anti-social behaviour guidance

Dear Resident

We are working hard to tackle Anti-social behaviour (ASB) in Brookside and the information provided to us by residents can be essential in taking action to make a difference where you live.

Some ASB incidents might be an issue for your local council so it may be useful to know to who contact.

Here are some examples of ASB that we want to know about:

  • Fireworks misuse (full laws and guidance on our website)
  • Abandonment of cars
  • Aggressive animals or use of animals in illegal activities 
  • Nuisance noise from people being inconsiderate in a public space
  • Indecent, threatening or offensive phone calls
  • Street drinking causing disruptive behaviour
  • Vehicle nuisance such as street racing and riding unlicensed powered vehicles
  • Here are some examples of ASB that isn’t a police matter and your local council could be informed on:

  • Someone blocking your driveway 
  • Stray dog that isn’t sick or injured
  • Nuisance noise from pubs and clubs, and construction sites
  • General littering, fly-tipping, hazardous items
  • Neighbour disputes such as loud music or dogs barking, parking, property boundaries, overgrowing trees and hedges
  • Trespassing without causing damage or harm
  • Full guidance on ASB and the different types can be found here: Antisocial behaviour | West Mercia Police

    Or you can find your local council here: Find your local council - GOV.UK (www.gov.uk)

    Should you have any concerns about potential ASB, or are experiencing ASB where you live, please contact your local council or if necessary report it to us: Report antisocial behaviour | West Mercia Police

    In an emergency, if you or your property are at risk, or a crime is in progress call 999.

    If you aren’t comfortable contacting us directly, you can pass on information anonymously to the independent charity, Crimestoppers, by calling 0800 555 111 or by visiting their website: www.crimestoppers-uk.org

    Thank you for your help. It is only by the police and the public working together that we can prevent and detect crime. 

    Kind regards,

    Rob Hughes
