ASB - Summer holiday message from PC 4567 Simon Morris DCPO

July 2017

With the summer holidays just about to start, unfortunately this is also the time when occurrences of anti-social behaviour increase.
The phrase Anti-Social Behaviour takes in a range of nuisances, disorder and crimes which affects people’s lives on a daily basis. It looks different and feels different in every area and to every victim. What is considered anti-social by one person can be acceptable to another.

Issues that can be considered as ASB include:
·         Rowdy, noisy behaviour in otherwise quiet neighbourhoods
·         Night time noise from houses or gardens, especially between 11.00pm and 7.00am
·         Threatening, drunken or intimidating behaviour
·         Vandalism, graffiti and fly-posting
·         Litter and fly-tipping rubbish
·         Drinking in the street

ASB can be difficult to define, and although annoying, there are some types of behaviour that are not classed as anti-social:
·         Children playing in the street or communal areas - unless they are causing damage to property
·         Young people gathering socially - unless they are rowdy, intimidating or causing a danger to themselves or others
·         Being unable to park outside your own home
·         DIY and off road car repairs- unless these are taking place late at night or early in the morning

Please be considerate to others, be mindful of where and what your children are up to and also, please be tolerant of others. As a community, let’s enjoy the summer holidays.
