Anti-Social Behaviour Reporting
West Midlands Police is committed to serving our communities and protecting them from harm. We are dedicated to listening to and dealing with those issues that matter to our communities the most.
Tackling anti-social behaviour is a priority on the Birmingham South local policing unit because we know how important it is to our communities.
Anti-social behaviour (ASB) is social harm directed against individuals, communities or the environment. It is any activity that impacts on other people in a negative way. Selfish and unacceptable activities can blight the quality of community life and we are committed to tackling them.
Examples of ASB include:
- Nuisance neighbours
- Intimidating groups taking over public spaces
- Vandalism, graffiti and fly-posting
- People dealing and buying drugs on the street
- People dumping rubbish and abandoning cars
- Begging and anti-social drinking
- The misuse of fireworks
- The misuse of mini-motos
To be effective in tackling ASB we need your support. We need information about where, when and who is involved in these incidents. This will allow your local neighbourhood officers, in partnership with Birmingham City Council, to address the incidents of ASB appropriately.
How can I report ASB?
If you are experiencing ASB in your area you can contact your local police station to discuss your concerns and work towards a lasting solution to your problem. There are several ways in which you can report ASB to West Midlands Police:
- By telephone - call 0345 1135000 and ask to be put through to your local police station. To find the details of your local police station you can enter your postcode into the 'My Neighbourhood' section of the West Midlands Police website at www.west-midlands.police.uk
- In person - you can report your concerns to us by attending the front office of your local police station, or by attending your local neighbourhood tasking meeting. Details of these meetings can be found on our website or by telephoning the above number. These meetings enable members of the community to meet with local officers to discuss issues of concern and have a real influence on local policing priorities.
- By email/post - you can report incidents of ASB to us via email or by post by completing an ASB self-reporting form (PDF). This enables you to report your concerns anonymously, if you wish, while still enabling you to report ASB directly to your local neighbourhood team.
Your neighbourhood officers genuinely appreciate how anti-social behaviour can seriously impact upon your quality of life. By working together we can find sustainable solutions to problems and help create neighbourhoods that are safe for everyone.
