Anti-Social Behaviour Report Form
Tackling Anti-Social Behaviour is a key priority for Boston Borough Council and the East Lincolnshire Community Safety Partnership. Boston Borough Council has employed a Community Safety team which is responsible for Anti-Social Behaviour Co-ordination and works with all partnership agencies to address and reduce anti-social behaviour issues.
What is Anti-Social Behaviour?
Anti-Social Behaviour is considered to be anything which has caused or is likely to cause harassment, alarm or distress to any member of the public. This can include:
Shouting and swearing
Vehicle related nuisance
Throwing stones/eggs at windows
Anti-Social Behaviour has a massive impact on peoples quality of life and it is our intention to work together with our partners to tackle these issues, and to ensure that those who live in our community are allowed to enjoy a way of life free from this sort of behaviour and disruption.
What are we doing to tackle Anti-Social Behaviour?
The Anti-Social Behaviour Act 2003 gave powers to Local Authorities, Police and Housing Associations to effectively tackle anti-social behaviour.
Boston Borough Council encourages all members of the public to take a stand against Anti-Social Behaviour and to report the problems that you are experiencing.
If you want to report Anti-Social Behaviour in your area, you can complete this on-line form or telephone 01205 314318. You will be given the option to print the form for your own records.
We take all complaints of Anti-social Behaviour seriously and will fully investigate all complaints. We may ask you to complete an “Anti-Social Behaviour Diary” to record details of the incidents as they occur. This is very important evidence as it will prove the extent of the behaviour and will allow us to take appropriate action.
Police Community Support Officers work very closely with the anti-social behaviour team to investigate anti-social behaviour complaints and to provide reassurance.
Police Community Support Officers have a weekly meeting with the Anti-Social Behaviour Team to report back on the ASB issues that they have been dealing with. This joined up approach allows the Anti-Social Behaviour Team to identify the resources that are working on a case and to allocate further resources if necessary.
We can only achieve this by working together, so please consider what you can do to make your community a better place to live in, and consider the impact that you have on other people's lives.
