You can report incidents of anti social behaviour in one of the following ways:
- complete the anti social behaviour form
- phone the anti social behaviour co-ordinator on 01235 422590 during office hours or email CommunitySafety@southoxon.gov.uk
- if you are a housing association tenant you can phone, visit or email your housing association.
- if your complaint is related to your tenancy you could contact your landlord directly.
- you can make your report without giving your name or any other personal details by visiting the Crimestoppers website or by phoning Crimestopperson 0800 555 111.
What happens next?
When you report antisocial behaviour, we will ask you for the following information:
You can make your reports anonymously, but if you want us to let you know how we are dealing with your report, we will need to know your name and address and how to get in touch with you.
Details about what happened
It would help us to tackle the problem if you are able to tell us where and when the incident happened and whether it has happened before.
Who was involved?
We would be able to take action quickly if we knew who was involved so we may ask if you recognise any of the people or vehicles involved.
Does the problem affect anyone else?
We want to make sure we have as much information as possible to decide what action to take, so we will check whether the behaviour affects any of your neighbours.
How we contact you
We will contact you by e-mail or phone. If it necessary for a police officer or police community support officer to contact you, we will ask for your consent and check convenient times for you.
Passing on your details
We may pass your details to another team or organisation so they can deal with part of the problem.
Diary of Incidents
We may ask for a diary to be sent to you by the police, you will then log incidents over a short period of up to four weeks.
Keep making reports
We will ask you to report any new incidents as and when they happen, so we have a better chance of finding the people involved in the antisocial behaviour.
Police Community Support Officers (PCSOs)
Police Community Support Officers (PCSOs) make regular patrols of areas where incidents are happening and they will introduce themselves to you. The PCSOs will talk to the people taking part in the antisocial behaviour activities, and encourage them to change their behaviour.
Keeping you informed
We will let you know what actions we are taking, either through your contact with the local PCSO or by contacting you directly.
