How to report anti-social behaviour
Please report anti-social behaviour to the police if you or someone you know is a victim of anti-social behaviour.
- If anti-social behaviour is affecting your quality of life, call 101, the Thames Valley 24-hour non-emergency number.
- If the anti-social behaviour makes you feel threatened, you or someone else is in danger, or the anti-social behaviour is in progress, call 999.
Police will treat every report or incident on its own merit. Your information could help us to take action against persistent offenders.
Under the Data Protection Act, any report that you make is treated as confidential so please don’t worry about your identity being revealed.
You can assist us by recording repeated incidents in an ASB Diary. You may download either a MS Word version or an Adobe PDF version of a diary by clicking on the links below.
What happens next?
- We will record all details and, where appropriate, provide initial advice.
- We will make contact with the appropriate department that can deal with your concern. This may be your local Neighbourhood Policing team, your area anti-social behaviour officer, or anti-social behaviour coordinator.
- We will consider what the appropriate response is and will be in contact with you.
If you are concerned about anti-social behaviour in your area, you can also:
- Speak to your local anti-social behaviour team (opens new window) to help you tackle problems in your area.
- Join your local Neighbourhood Watch scheme to contribute in helping to tackle anti-social behaviour.
- If you are a tenant, your landlord (council or housing association) can assist you – especially if the offender is also a tenant of your landlord’s.
