Community Trigger

What is Community Trigger?

The Community Trigger is a means by which victims of persistent anti-social behaviour can request a review of their case. Once the Community Trigger has been requested, the South and Vale Community Safety Partnership (which includes the local authorities, police, health providers and/or social housing) will decide whether any further action can be taken to resolve the issue.

It is important to remember that Community Trigger is not for making a complaint or reporting new anti-social behaviour cases. If you want to make a complaint about the way in which an organisation has dealt with your case, you should enquire with them about their complaints procedure.

If you want to report a new case of anti social behaviour call Thames Valley Police on 101. Alternatively, you can contact the district council’s community safety team on 01235 422590 (office hours only). Always dial 999 in an emergency.

When should I use Community Trigger?

The Community Trigger is for you if you feel that no one is dealing with the anti-social behaviour problems you have been reporting.

If you have already reported the problem to the council, police or housing provider, the community trigger is a way for you to ask the agencies to review your case. It will make sure we work together to try and solve the problem.
