Community triggers make it easier for victims and communities to get anti-social behaviour stopped.
In Gwent the community trigger took effect from 20 October 2014, as part of the Anti-social Behaviour, Crime and Policing Act.
Victims of persistent anti-social behaviour can request a review of actions taken if they feel the problem has not been resolved.
The community trigger is a last resort if victims of anti-social behaviour feel that not enough has been done to deal with a reported incident.
