Anti-social behaviour covers a wide range of unacceptable activity that causes harm to an individual, their community, or their environment. This could be an action by someone else that leaves you feeling alarmed, harassed or distressed.
It also includes fear of crime or concern for public safety, public disorder or public nuisance. Illegal motorbikes are just one example of anti-social behaviour which police are called to deal with.
Examples of anti-social behaviour include:
• Nuisance, rowdy or inconsiderate neighbours.
• Vandalism, graffiti and fly-posting.
• Street drinking. • Environmental damage including littering, dumping of rubbish and abandonment of cars.
• Prostitution related activity.
