Community Trigger - Case Review
On-going anti-social behaviour causing harassment, alarm or
distress to members of the public in Bedford Borough may need
further intervention by organisations such as the Council, Police,
health organisation, and registered social landlords.
Together they may be able to find a solution by completing a
joint case review and action plan.
Victims and/or complainants are entitled to apply for a review
of their case if they feel the problem has not been resolved,
despite having previously reported it to one or more agencies and
even if those agencies had supported a joint action plan.
The Anti-Social Behaviour, Crime and Policing Act 2014
Sets out the requirement for local authorities and others to
make arrangements for, and to carry out, Anti-Social Behaviour Case
Reviews – otherwise known as the ‘Community Trigger’. There are
certain criteria that need to be met in order for anti-social
behaviour cases to be considered for a case review, which is
explained in the attached document entitled ‘ASB Case
