Community trigger

Persistent anti-social behaviour can seriously affect quality of life, community triggers make it easier for victims and communities to get this behaviour stopped. 

In Gwent the community trigger took effect from 20 October 2014, as a new provision in the Anti-social Behaviour, Crime and Policing Act.

Victims of persistent anti-social behaviour can request a review of actions taken by agencies if they feel the problem has not been resolved.
The community trigger should be viewed as a last resort if victims of anti-social behaviour feel that inadequate action has been taken to deal with a reported incident.
