The Community Trigger

The Community Trigger comes into effect from 20 October 2014.​​

It is a process designed to make sure that the Community Safety Partnership (i.e. the Council, local Police and other partners - including Registered Providers like havering Council) review it's responses to reports of ASB in a timely manner.

If you feel you might meet the criteria below and you feel the Community Safety Partnership may not have dealt with your concerns, you may wish to raise a Community Trigger.

Please contact 01708 434343 and ask for the ASB Reduction Officer who will facilitate your request and explain the steps you must take.

  • If you (as an individual) have complained to the Council, Police or a Registered Housing Provider (Social Landlord) about three separate incidents in the last six months and you consider there has been no action taken.

  • If five individuals in your local community have complained separately to the Council, Police or a Registered Housing Provider (Social Landlord) in the last six months about similar incidents of anti-social behaviour and they consider there has been no action taken.

  • If you have been the victim of a Hate Crime (see definition below). 

​A Hate Crime is any crime that is targeted at a person because of hostility or prejudice towards that person's disability, race or ethnicity, religion or belief, sexual orientation or transgender identity.
