Community Trigger - Case Review

On-going anti-social behaviour causing harassment, alarm or distress to members of the public in Bedford Borough may need further intervention by organisations such as the Council, Police, health organisation, and registered social landlords.

Together they may be able to find a solution by completing a joint case review and action plan.

Victims and/or complainants are entitled to apply for a review of their case if they feel the problem has not been resolved, despite having previously reported it to one or more agencies and even if those agencies had supported a joint action plan.

 

The Anti-Social Behaviour, Crime and Policing Act 2014

Sets out the requirement for local authorities and others to make arrangements for, and to carry out, Anti-Social Behaviour Case Reviews – otherwise known as the ‘Community Trigger’. There are certain criteria that need to be met in order for anti-social behaviour cases to be considered for a case review, which is explained in the attached document entitled ‘ASB Case Review procedure - Information & Guidance Sheet’

 

Also attached is an application form.  Once completed the form should be e-mailed to communitysafety@bedford.gov.uk  The procedure is administered by Bedford Borough Council on behalf of partner agencies.

Alternatively you can use the following link to complete and submit the application form on line.
