Antisocial Behaviour

Reading's Community Safety Partnership recognises that antisocial behaviour is a problem that can affect the quality of life of individuals, families and communities.

We are committed to tackling antisocial behaviour and will continue to work together to reduce antisocial behaviour and support victims and witnesses.

To demonstrate our commitment to dealing with antisocial behaviour we have established a set of minimum standards for dealing with reported incidents of antisocial behaviour.

We will:

  • Take all reports of antisocial behaviour seriously and ensure that they are recorded and investigated thoroughly by the appropriate agency
  • Support victims and witnesses of antisocial behaviour and ensure they are kept informed of what is being done to tackle the issue and by which agency. Where appropriate we will make sure that agencies work together to resolve issues
  • Ensure that all agencies dealing with antisocial behaviour work together, sharing relevant information, making sure that effective action is taken to resolve issues quickly
  • Provide updates on what is being done to tackle antisocial behaviour in local neighbourhoods through Neighbourhood Action Groups, 'Have Your Say' events, leaflets and newsletters and Neighbourhood Police teams monthly updates
  • Provide residents with the right to complain to Reading's Community Safety Partnership if effective action is not taken to tackle antisocial behaviour, through the 'Councillor Call for Action' process
  • Work in partnership to reduce residents' perceptions of antisocial behaviour and measure this through the 'Place Survey' and interim area-based surveys

To report incidents of antisocial behaviour phone the Thames Valley Police Non-Emergency Phone Number - 0845 8 505 505 with as much detail as possible.
