What we will do about it?
Suffolk Police are working in partnership with the County
Council and all five Community Safety Partnerships and their
Anti-Social Behaviour Co-ordinators to tackle this problem from a
multi agency perspective.
If Anti-Social Behaviour (ASB) is affecting you or your family,
you can expect us to:
- Listen to you & treat the problem seriously
- Take action to permanently address the problem
- Prevent it happening again
- Report back to you about what we have done.
What else can you do?
- Join your local Neighbourhood Watch scheme or a tenants' or
- Attend a monthly meeting with your Safer Neighbourhood
- Discuss any issues with your local councillor, who can act on
your behalf to raise concerns with the council and other
- Become a volunteer for Victim Support
- Become a Volunteer in Policing
- Become a Special Constable.
By playing an active role in your community you really can help
make a difference. Help make yours a neighbourhood where
anti-social behaviour is tackled, not tolerated.
A set of minimum standards has been developed by the Community
Safety Partnerships (CSPs).
CSPs consist of representatives from Suffolk Police, Suffolk
Police Authority, Suffolk County Council, District and Borough
Councils, Youth Offending Teams, Suffolk NHS, Drugs and Alcohol
Teams, Suffolk Probation and Suffolk Fire and Rescue Service.
Suffolk has three CSPs, covering Ipswich, Waveney, Suffolk
Coastal and the West of the county. All three CSPs have agreed to
adhere to the minimum service standards, ensuring a consistent
response to any report of anti-social behaviour (ASB) anywhere in
In line with defined minimum standards, the CSP will work
together in partnership to reduce instances of ASB by diversion,
early intervention and effective enforcement.
The standards give assurances to victims that a joint approach
will be taken to tackle their issue and stipulates the standard of
service they can expect.
