Crime and Anti-Social Behaviour
Reporting crime and anti-social behaviour
Crime and anti-social behaviour reduction is not the sole responsibility of the Police or any other single organisation. It is the responsibility of everyone.
What is crime and anti-social behaviour?
A crime occurs when a law is broken and this can result in a punishment.
Anti-social behaviour is behaviour which causes or is likely to cause harassment, alarm or distress. Anti-social behaviour covers a wide range of anti-social actions and behaviour which impact on individuals and damage the wider community. It may also include criminal acts.
