Crime and Anti-Social Behaviour
Anti social behaviour
Reporting anti-social behaviour
If you're faced with noisy neighbours, or you've seen someone littering, drawing graffiti, or committing other acts of anti-social behaviour, you shouldn't suffer in silence.
Tell us what's happening
The first step is to speak to members of your Safer Neighbourhood Team (SNT). These teams work closely with residents and partners to help stop anti-social behaviour. They can provide support and advice, and help you decide how to handle the situation. If you or your neighbours are tenants of the Council you should report this to your local housing office. If you live in a property that is managed by a registered social landlord such as Sanctuary Housing, South Yorkshire Housing Association etc you can report any incidents directly to them.
If the anti-social behaviour is affecting your quality of life, or making you fear for your safety or the safety of others, you should contact South Yorkshire Police on 01142 20 20 20. Staff working there will advise you regarding your complaint.
More information about how to report crime and anti social behaviour
When we are made aware of an anti-social behaviour complaint, we will ask you to log the incidents, and to keep us informed of what's happening. We need to have enough evidence about what's going on to take legal action against the people causing the problems.
Any action will depend upon the circumstances and how serious the incidents are.
