Frome Rural PACT Priority – Anti -Social behaviour within our rural villages.

Agreed: 06 May 2016

Added by Michael Storey on 12 May 2016 at 08:33

Anti-social behaviour affects and hurts our communities. Our Rural villages would like this made a PACT priority. Anti-social behaviour is actions that lack consideration for others or harm their well-being, by causing harassment, alarm or distress. The police, local authorities and other agencies such as social housing landlords, all have a responsibility to deal with anti-social behaviour and to help people who are suffering from it.

There are a variety of ways in which the Police and other agencies can tackle ASB. However a key factor in every ASB matter is the requirement for evidence that the behaviour is occurring This ASB diary is designed to capture events as they happen and record the effect these incidents have on the community. By gathering this information we can look to manage the behaviour and with a view to preventing it in the future.

    WHAT YOU CAN DO TO TACKLE ANTI-SOCIAL BEHAVIOUR- YOU can help the police and other agencies to tackle problems in your area by reporting anti-social behaviour when you see it happening. By coming forward to report anti-social behaviour you may prevent the same problem happening again and again and you will help to make your community a safer place. Evidence from victims and witnesses is important because it demonstrates the distress and annoyance of anti-social behaviour. If you report being a victim or witness of anti-social behaviour support is available to help you at every stage of action. There are other things you can do to help the police, your local council and other agencies such as housing providers – for example by joining Neighbourhood Watch, a tenants’ or residents’ association. You could also attend one of the monthly beat surgeries that are held by the police or one of the quarterly PACT meetings held by the police. By playing an active role in your community you can really help make a difference and create a place where anti-social behaviour is tackled and not tolerated.
