Anti-social Behaviour – The new ASB Bill
The way we tackle ASB in Birmingham has recently changed. Anti-social behaviour powers were reformed in October 2014 meaning changes to the powers available to us to assist victims of anti-social behavoour . The new powers ensure that the victim is at the heart of the response to anti-social behaviour and that professionals have the flexibility needed to deal with the many different situations that ASB presents.
As well as new powers, the reform includes the introduction of a new measure called ‘The Community Trigger.’
What is the Community Trigger?
The Community Trigger gives victims the ability to hold statutory agencies to account for the way they have tackled ASB.
When can you use The Community Trigger?
The Community Trigger can only be used when the threshold has been met. The threshold is:
- If an individual has reported anti-social behaviour to the council, police and/or a registered provider (previously called registered social landlord) three timesabout seperate incidents in the last six months; or
- If five individuals in the local community have reported similar incidents of anti-social behaviour separately to the council, police/registered social landlord in the last six months, and they consider no action has been taken; or
- If an individual has reported one incident or a crime motivated by hate* in the last three months to the council/police or registered social landlord and no action has been taken.
Definition of hate crime:
*Hate crime is defined as any criminal offence committed against a person or property that is motivated by hostility towards someone based on their actual or perceived disability, race, religion, gender identity or sexual orientation, which is a factor in determining who is victimised. A victim does not have to be a member of a group and in fact, anyone could be a victim of hate crime.
