What is the Community Trigger?
The community trigger is described at section 104 of the Anti-Social Behaviiour Crime and Policing Act 2014.
The purpose of the community trigger is to give those affected by repeated anti-social behaviour, the right to request an Anti-Social Behaviour Case Review. The community trigger can only be used if you think your concerns have not been dealt with, or acted upon, by agencies.
Please note, concerns about individual officers, or services, should continue to be directed to the relevant organisation’s complaints procedure and/or the Ombudsman or the Independent Police Complaints Commission.
