Dealing with anti-social behaviour

Anti-Social Behaviour (ASB) is generally defined as behaviour that causes or is likely to cause harassment, alarm or distress to another individual.

Leicestershire County Council is committed to doing all it can to help prevent the problems caused by anti-social behaviour.

If you feel you are the victim of anti-social behaviour there are several courses of action you are able to take. 

Speak to the person who is causing you a nuisance. Could the issue be resolved with a simple conversation? Stay calm and be tolerant of their point of view. 

If this doesn’t work, keep a simple diary of instances where they have caused you a problem. This will be helpful for any future investigations. 

If the issue is ongoing report it. 

Report it....
