Staffordshire Police awarded ASB Pledge status following Anti-Social Behaviour awareness week

We have been awarded for our efforts in tackling anti-social behaviour (ASB) across Staffordshire.

On 12 July, the force was presented with an ASB Pledge status by the charity, ASB Help, for the work we have completed together with partners to install a clear process to assist victims of ASB across Staffordshire.

The ASB Pledge, which is linked to the ASB case review process, is awarded when all organisations involved in the case review process have embedded best practice into their policies and procedures. It shows that those involved have taken positive steps to make sure that residents facing ASB issues are given a voice and that partner organisations work together effectively to resolve issues.

Victims of ASB, which can be an individual, business, or community group, can request a formal review of their case if they have reported at least three separate ASB issues within six months and the issue is still ongoing without resolution.

If a case meets the threshold for review, a panel of organisations, including the police, councils, clinical commissioning groups, social housing providers, and in some cases the Police, Fire and Rescue and Crime Commissioner, will review the details and make official recommendations.

Although, local officers are keen to tackle these issues before they reach this point and continue to work with support organisations, such as ASB Harmony, to provide individual support for victims.

This includes mediation, signposting to other relevant organisations and emotional support.

The award of ASB Pledge status took place following a week which also saw officers from local policing teams hold ASB awareness events across the county, patrols in hotspot locations and education work to make young people aware of the potential impacts of ASB.

Chief Inspector Laura Morrey, force lead for ASB, said: “It’s really important to recognise the impacts anti-social behaviour can have on victims, which is why we are committed to working with partners to tackle it every day.

“Receiving ASB pledge status is a great reflection of the work officers do for their local communities with the support of our partner organisations, and we hope this reassures residents that we take this issue very seriously.

“We want to encourage victims of anti-social behaviour to reach out for support. They can speak to their local officer, report any issues through the Staffordshire Police website, call 101, or contact Crimestoppers.”

Katy Anderson, Practitioner Support Manager from ASB Help said: “It has been a pleasure to work with Staffordshire Police and the local authorities across Staffordshire to develop their ASB Case Review process and ensure consistency county wide.

“In signing our ASB PLEDGE they have demonstrated that they have embraced the legislation, deliver best practice and truly put the victim at the heart of the case review process.”
