Actions to consider
- Report the incidents to your local council, Police and Registered Housing Provider.
- If you are experiencing problems with anti-social behaviour, or have any concerns about it, or other community safety issues, you should contact your local council or call the non-emergency number, 101. In an emergency, call 999.
- Keep a simple diary with the date, time and place that behaviour happened, what you were doing at that time and how you felt.
- If you want to report a crime anonymously, you can call CrimeStoppers on 0800 555 111.
- If the incidents are within the criteria you can download and submit a community trigger form from the Leicester City Council website.
