Derbyshire Constabulary launches anti-social behaviour survey
Victims of anti-social behaviour can help us improve by giving their feedback in a new survey.
Posted on 21 October 2022
Anti-social behaviour covers a wide range of activities, such as nuisances involving noise or animals, fire setting and vandalism. We want to hear about your experience of reporting anti-social behaviour (ASB) to the police and the support you received.
Chief Inspector Paul Stevenson said:
"This survey is part of our commitment to tackling anti-social behaviour in Derbyshire and supporting the victims. We know that ASB can often have a lasting effect on communities, so this survey will help us further understand the impact on victims, and how the police action has been received.
"Please take the time to complete the survey if you have reported ASB to us in the past 12 months – your responses will help form our future approaches."

Derbyshire Police and Crime Commissioner Angelique Foster said:
"People want to see a strong and robust approach to anti-social behaviour. This is why I have prioritised the issue in my Police and Crime Plan and continue to monitor the force's performance while investing specific funds in targeted preventative work in the heart of our communities.
"This survey is a positive step and will provide further insight into the impact of anti-social behaviour on victims while also identifying how best we can meet their needs. I urge anyone affected by anti-social behaviour to share their experiences and help us to shape future support."
ASB can have a financial, physical, and psychological impact so Derbyshire Victim Services offer support to victims of anti-social behaviour if they need it. This might be by giving a victim the opportunity to talk to someone about how they're feeling or linking them with a range of specialist support agencies.
Further information on how we work together to tackle ASB in Derbyshire is available on the ASB Hub.
