Community trigger

Tackling antisocial behaviour continues to be a key priority for all community safety partners in Derbyshire.  We work together to bring to justice those causing antisocial behaviour and provide support for people affected by it.

We continually work hard to provide a good service, but realise that there are occasions when we don't get it right first time.  This is where the Community Trigger comes in.

What is the Community Trigger?

The Community Trigger gives, those affected by anti-social behaviour, the right to request an antisocial behaviour case review of the response to their reports of anti-social behaviour.  The Community Trigger should only be used if you think your concerns have not been dealt with, or acted upon.

When can I use the Community Trigger?

You can use the Community Trigger if:-

  • you have reported three or more related incidents of antisocial behaviour, within the last six months

Or

  • five separate individuals have reported related incidents of antisocial behaviour, within the last six months


You can apply for the Community Trigger on behalf of someone else, but you must provide their written consent, alongside the application form.

What happens when I submit a Community Trigger Application Form?

We will review the information you have provided to check if your case meets the community trigger threshold.  If it doe then, an antisocial behaviour case review will take place.  This will involve agencies sharing information, such as the police, housing, environmental health, and social care, depending on the nature of the case.  The antisocial behaviour case review will discuss the issues you raise, consider what action has already been taken and consider recommendations for additional action to resolve the problem.

We will inform you of the outcome and recommendations.

If you are not satisfied with the outcome you can lodge an appeal with the Office of the Police and Crime Commissioner for Derbyshire.
