Anti Social Behaviour Open or Close
Anti Social Behaviour (ASB) covers many types of actions from low-level persistent nuisance to serious public disturbance. It covers the following:
Anti social behaviour includes a range of problems – noisy neighbours, abandoned cars, vandalism, graffiti, litter and youth nuisance. Together with the Community Safety Partnership, we recognise that the behaviour of a persistent minority can ruin the lives of individuals and damage whole communities. It can hold back the regeneration of our most disadvantaged areas, creating the environment in which crime can take hold.If you are experiencing anti social behaviour and this is being caused by someone in your neighbourhood your first point of contact should be through our Contact Centres or in the case of an emergency contact the Police on 999.Other information on anti social behaviour can be obtained from the following organisations:
- behaviour that can cause nuisance and annoyance
- behaviour likely to cause harassment, alarm or distress
- behaviour which creates significant and persistent problems in neighbourhoods
- behaviour which leaves communities feeling intimidated and afraid.
Community Safety Partnership Open or Close
Community safety partnerships (CSPs) are made up of representatives from the police and Police and Crime Commissioner, the local council, Derbyshire Fire and Rescue, Clinical Commissioning Groups and probation services (responsible authorities). Community safety partnerships were set up as statutory bodies under Sections 5-7 of the Crime and Disorder Act 1998.
The responsible authorities work together to develop and implement strategies to protect their local communities from crime and to help people feel safe. They work out local approaches to deal with issues including antisocial behaviour, drug or alcohol misuse and re-offending as well as Crime and disorder. They also work with others who have a key role, including community groups, schools and registered local landlords. Please find a copy of the Police and Crime Commissioner's Council Tax Budget Summary here for 2018-2019.

Crime Prevention Open or Close
Each of us can play an important part in reducing overall crime levels, by taking action to reduce the likelihood of becoming a victim of crime ourselves by taking on board crime prevention advice.
This can be done by making sure our homes and vehicles are secured, keeping valuables in a safe place, and making sure property is marked. We can also improve our personal safety by keeping wallets and purses, mobile phones and other items from view that are of interest to the opportunist thief.

Emergencies come in all shapes and sizes and when we least expect them. They can vary from severe weather disruption and flooding to loss of premises and power failure to chemical leaks and explosions.
If an emergency occurs, as a local authority, we have a vital role to play in helping to keep you safe, provide information on what to do, keep local services operating as much as possible and keep you informed off the situation.
Together with our partners, we prepare for such emergencies by attending regular training and exercises so we can ensure we are prepared and there is a co-ordinated and efficient response. As a local council we also have plans in place to deal with such emergencies.
Parenting Open or Close
We would like to achieve a future in which any parent within the District who needs support will know where to turn and be able to benefit from a range of appropriate and accessible services. Improving parents' skills, taking preventative measures and using enforcement action to reduce anti social behaviour will contribute to strengthening communities.
We recognise that the majority of parents in the District do a good job, often in challenging circumstances. Below are some useful links ranging from general information through to specialist services including access to evidence based parenting programmes and courses.
