What is a ASB Case Review?
The ASB Case Review is a process which allows members of the community to ask the Community Safety Partnership to review their response to complaints of anti-social behaviour
The ASB Case Review is designed to ensure the council, police and housing providers work together to try and resolve repeated reports of anti-social behaviour, where there has been inappropriate action taken to address this. Members of the community will be able to tell us about it under the ASB Case Review.
We will do this by talking about the problem, sharing information and using our resources to try and reach an agreeable outcome.
A complainant has reported the same problem three or more times in the past six months to the council, police or their landlord, and inappropriate action has been taken in line with the relevant agency's policies and procedures.
- Different complainants have made reports about the same problem five times in the past six months to the council, police or their landlord, and inappropriate action has been taken in line with the relevant agency's policies and procedures.
ASB Case Review Criteria
What do we mean by “no action” taken?
The reported problems have not been acknowledged – i.e. no one contacted the complainant to advise what action would be taken.
- The reported problems have not been appropriately investigated in accordance with the relevant agency's policies and procedures.
- The complainant's vulnerability and/or the potential for harm have not been considered and this has affected potential service delivery.
- No action has been taken because information has not been shared between partners and this has affected potential service delivery.
What is not suitable for a ASB Case Review?
If someone has reported anti-social behaviour and received a service, but the problems and the investigation are on-going. They will be advised to contact the agency they are working with to tell them what is happening.
If someone has reported anti-social behaviour and received a service, but they’re unhappy with the service received or action taken. They will be advised to submit a complaint under the agency’s complaints procedures.
It is not a complaints process. If you are not satisfied with the outcome of a case, contact the relevant organisation (the police, council, social landlord etc) and ask for their complaints process.
