We encourage the reporting of anti-social behaviour to see how we can help to reduce the fear and unease it can cause.
Who can help me?
PSNI - We are the best first port of call for incidents that are happening there and then and that you feel may escalate into something more serious. Often what may seem like disorderly behaviour may actually be people committing crimes such as damaging property or fighting in the street.
Local Councils – Your local councils have a wide range of criminal and civil powers to deal with issues such as noisy neighbours, littering and dog fouling. Some Councils have employed Community Safety Wardens to help with this task.
Housing Executive & Housing Associations – The Housing Executive and Housing Associations have a number of options available to deal with tenants and those on their property who are causing anti-social behaviour.
The table below sets out some of the remedies for dealing with anti-social behaviour and the agencies which lead on them.
