You can report persistent cases of anti-social behaviour to us
We take complaints of anti-social behaviour seriously.
Our Minimum Standards policy outlines how we deal with anti-social behaviour and how we’ll handle your case if you become a victim.
Before contacting us about anti-social behaviour, ask yourself if the behaviour you’re reporting is persistent and meets the following definitions:
- ‘Acting in a manner that causes or is likely to cause harassment, alarm or distress to one or more people not of the same household.’
- ‘Behaviour that unreasonably interferes with other people’s rights to use their home and community.’
The complaints we get about anti-social behaviour usually involve:
- Alcohol and drug misuse
- Youth nuisance
- Neighbour disputes
- Intimidation and harassment
- Racial abuse
- Littering and fly-tipping
- Abandoned cars
- Vehicle nuisance
Dorset Police also take anti-social behaviour seriously, if you feel you are in danger call them straight away.
