How to use the ASB Case Review formerly Community Trigger

What is Anti-social behaviour?

Anti-social behaviour (ASB) covers a lot of different types of behaviour and can affect people in many different ways.

For the purpose of the ASB Case Review, ASB means behaviour causing or likely to cause nuisance, annoyance, harassment, alarm or distress to any member of the public or which may have a detrimental effect on someone’s quality of life.

What is an ASB Case Review?

An ASB Case Review is an important safety net for victims and communities experiencing ASB to request a review of their ASB case and to bring agencies together to find a solution for the victim(s).

An activation should be made where the Threshold is met and where victims are unsatisfied with the response they have received from the relevant agencies.


In Northumberland, Tyne and Wear, the ASB Case Review threshold is met when;

  • an application for an ASB Case Review is made; and
  • at least three qualifying complaints have been made about the ASB.

How to Activate an ASB Case Review?

In Northumberland, Tyne and Wear, ASB Case Review activations across all of the 6 Local Authorities are coordinated by the Northumbria Office of the Police and Crime Commissioner who will:

  • Acknowledge receipt of your ASB Case Review request and gather further information from you (where required)
  • Liaise with the relevant Community Safety Partnerships
  • Share information with agencies who are responsible for managing anti-social behaviour
  • Record and publish relevant data relating to ASB Case Review activations
