Anti Social Behaviour Case Review

Tackling anti social behaviour in Derbyshire (opens in a new window)

Responding to, and tackling, anti-social behaviour is a priority for all community safety partners in Derbyshire. North East Derbyshire CSP brings organisations together to enable us to bring to justice those causing anti-social behaviour and provide support for people affected by it.

North East Derbyshire CSP always strives to provide a high level of service, but recognise that there may be times when, we don’t get it right. This is where the ASB case review comes in.

What is the ASB case review?

The ASB case review gives victims of anti-social behaviour the right to request a review of their case, if their concerns have not been dealt with, or acted upon, and organisations have been unable to resolve the serious persistent, or targeted, anti-social behaviour successfully.

If you haven’t already reported the anti-social behaviour, you should report it to the appropriate organisation.  For more information, use our how to report anti-social behaviour tool.

The aim of the review is to see whether anything else can be done and possibly find solutions that may not have been considered before.

In Derbyshire, the ASB case review process is managed by the local council on behalf of the other organisations that will be involved in the review, such as the police, local health teams and housing providers.

When can the ASB case review be used?

You can use the ASB case review if:-

  • you have reported three or more related incidents of anti-social behaviour, within the last six months.

It doesn’t matter who the anti-social behaviour has been reported to (the council, the police or your landlord), please use the ASB case review application form on our website.

You can apply for the ASB case review on behalf of someone else, but you must provide their consent, with the application form.

A detailed explanation of the threshold for the ASB case review is contained within the Guidance Notes for the ASB case review Application Form (.docx | 50kb).

When should the ASB case review not be used?

If you haven’t already reported the anti-social behaviour, you should report it to the appropriate organisation.  For more information, use our how to report anti-social behaviour tool.

The ASB case review is not intended to be an alternative to the relevant organisation’s complaints procedure, which is designed to deal with complaints about individual officers, or services.

The complaints procedure is appropriate for concerns such as:-

  • where staff have been rude or disrespectful to you
  • where staff have given inaccurate or misleading information
  • where staff have promised things, such as telephone calls or meetings, and have not delivered on these
  • where the organisation has failed to follow their policy and/or procedure.

If you have followed the relevant organisation’s complaints procedure and you are still dissatisfied, you will be given information about the Local Government and Social Care Ombudsman, the Housing Ombudsman or the Independent Office for Police Conduct.

What happens when I submit an ASB case review application form?

We will confirm receipt of a completed ASB case review Application Form, within five working days.

We will review the information you have provided, to determine whether your case meets the ASB case review threshold. If it does, an Anti-Social Behaviour Case Review will take place. This will involve agencies sharing information, such as with the police, housing, environmental health, social care and health providers, depending on the nature of the case. The Anti-Social Behaviour Case Review will discuss the issues you raise, consider what action has already been taken and consider recommendations for additional action to resolve the problem.

We will inform you of the outcome and recommendations of the Anti-Social Behaviour Case Review.

If you are not satisfied with the outcome of the ASB case review, you can lodge an appeal with the Office of the Police and Crime Commissioner for Derbyshire.

We welcome the opportunity to review cases of anti-social behaviour, but ASB case review applications may be rejected if they are thought to be prejudicial, discriminatory, malicious, unreasonable or vexatious.
