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 can 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.

Anti-Social Behaviour, Crime and Policing Act 2014

This Act enables victims of anti-social behaviour (ASB) to require local authorities and others to make arrangements for, and to carry out, Anti-Social Behaviour Case Reviews – otherwise known as the Community Trigger.

Bedford Borough Council administers the procedure on behalf of partner agencies.

Certain criteria need to be met in order for anti-social behaviour cases to be considered for a case review.
