What can you do about it?
Anti-social behaviour cannot be resolved without your help and involvement!
Try speaking to the person responsible for the nuisance
Don't do this when either of you are angry or upset. If you feel frightened, drop a polite note through their door informing them of the problem. It is often better to address a problem in person early on, rather than to leave it and to get more and more annoyed with the situation. Your neighbour may have more respect for you if you address the problem yourself rather than officially complain to the police or us. Often people don't realise that they are causing a nuisance.
Speak to your Neighbourhood Police Team
To report non-emergency ASB incidents please call Thames Valley Police Non-emergency number 101 or contact the Public Safety Team on 01296 396093 or 396094
Have Your Say events are held in every neighbourhood once per month. The event is an opportunity to raise your concerns with the neighbourhood police team and your local Police Community Safety Officer (PCSO). These dates are published on the thames valley police website (www.thamesvalley.police.uk).
Neighbourhood Action Groups (NAGs) are a community based group who deal with local crime and disorder issues in partnership with the police and council. If you would like to find out more about your NAG, how to get involved and future meeting dates, visit www.thamesvalley.police.uk
