Objectives and guidelines
- To establish effective working relationships between the Partnership and other organisations likely to be involved with the investigation and reduction of complaints of anti-social behaviour.
- To co-operate in the development and delivery of policies which effectively improve the tackling of crime, anti-social behaviour and harassment, including racial harassment.
- To pursue all available remedies with a view to modifying the behaviour of offending individuals and effecting a lasting solution.
- To increase the confidence of residents in the ability of the police, councils and other organisations to combat anti-social behaviour problems and to encourage their support and empowerment in combating crime, racial and other forms of harassment.
- To monitor all referrals and interventions to gain a better understanding of anti social behaviour in our local areas.
Individual incidents are dealt with by the relevant organisation eg housing providers should deal with housing issues, the local police enforce and investigate crime and Environmental Health has the power to deal with noise pollution. Where a pattern of behaviour is identified and shown to be persistent and complaints have been received by various organisations then we tackle it together.
By working in a co-ordinated manner with clear communication between all agencies we are able to identify the root cause of the problem and ensure that the appropriate organisations are informed and take responsibility for its resolution. Theses agencies can provide the necessary support to the complainant to be able to address and deal with the problem. There is always a reason why someone acts in a manner that can be described as 'anti social or unacceptable'. Our aim is to find out what that reason is and how 'the partnership' can help that person to moderate their behaviour to an acceptable level so everyone can enjoy their own lives.
