Anti-social behaviour

We recognise that anti-social behaviour is a serious problem affecting the quality of life of individuals, families and communities.

There is not a universally accepted definition of anti-social behaviour so the SaferPeterborough partnership adopts that set out in the Crime and Disorder Act 1998, which states:

‘A manner that caused or was likely to cause harassment, alarm or distress to one or more persons not of the same household.’

Anti-social represents an accumulation of crimes or incidents, which may not be deemed serious, but together have a devastating effect upon individuals and communities.

Report anti-social behaviour

You can report anti-social behaviour using the MyPeterborough online reporting system.

Please note: we do not provide a 24-hour emergency service. If you need emergency help you should call the police on 999.
