ASB Case Review
The Anti-Social Behaviour, Crime and Policing Act 2014 has introduced the Anti-Social Behaviour Case Review as a new measure designed to give victims and communities the ability to demand action by requesting a review of their ASB case.
If you are a resident of the Braintree District you can now request an Anti-Social Behaviour Case Review if you feel that agencies have not adequately responded to ASB reports.
You can request an ASB Case Review if:
- If you have reported Anti-Social Behaviour to Braintree District Council, Essex Police or Housing Provider 3 or more times in the last 6 months
- If you have reported a Hate Crime Incident to Braintree District Council, Essex Police or Housing Provider once in the last 6 months
- The reports of Anti-Social Behaviour or Hate Crime have been made within one month of the alleged incident taking place
How to request an ASB Case Review
The Community Remedy gives victims a say in the out of court punishment for perpetrators for low level crime and anti-social behaviour.
The Police & Crime Commissioner for Essex has prepared and consulted on a community remedy document, this document will provide a menu of options.
During 1st April 2018 - 31st March 2019 a total of 3 applications for an ASB Case Review were received by Braintree District Council. None of these applications met the threshhold for a review to be carried out.
