Antisocial behaviour means behaving in a way which causes, or is likely to cause, alarm and distress to the community. It can include:

  • abuse;
  • drug dealing;
  • vandalism and graffiti;
  • noise disturbances (loud music, noisy parties or shouting) and;
  • threatening or violent behaviour.

Antisocial behaviour is not always a crime but incidents of violence, suspected drug dealing, and hate crime should always be reported to the Police.
