Anti-social behaviour defined
POLICE say anti-social behaviour can range from mild annoyance to incidents causing genuine fear and insecurity. It could be a one-off event or something that recurs time and time again.
Examples include nuisance neighbours, yobbish behaviour and intimidating groups taking over public spaces, vandalism, graffiti and fly-posting, people dealing and buying drugs on the street, dumping rubbish and abandoning cars, anti-social drinking, the misuse of fireworks and reckless driving of mini-motorbikes.
The force has said that once it is reported they will provide regular updates to the community on what is being done to deal with it. It said it takes reports of anti-social behaviour seriously.
