Antisocial behaviour has been a growing problem in some areas of South Derbyshire and more needs to be done to tackle this problem. This week marks the first-ever Antisocial Behaviour Awareness Week and organisations across Derbyshire are joining together to make a stand and work to support victims and make our communities safer.
Antisocial behaviour can have a serious impact on communities and individuals lives, as an MP I, unfortunately, receive many letters and emails hearing stories of how it has impacted them, mentally and physically. This new campaign running from the 19th to 25th July, will hopefully raise awareness about the impact of Antisocial Behaviour.
I am pleased to work with councillors, the police, fire and housing associations to raise awareness and encourage respect and outline the support available to tack antisocial behaviour and stop it for good.
If you or your community is having trouble with Antisocial Behaviour, a new online hub has been treated to help support you, your family, friends and neighbours. Visit: https://view.pagetiger.com/asb/derbyshire
You can also report instances of antisocial behaviour anonymously you can call Crime stoppers on 0800 555 111 or via www.crimestoppers-uk.org
Antisocial behaviour can be anything from vandalism, to public drunkenness or aggressive dogs, to noisy or abusive neighbours. People in our communities deserve to live in a safe neighbourhood, free from fear and intimidation and we must work together to secure this.
With more police on our streets, our neighbourhoods are becoming safer, and their quick responses have helped solve crime and put an end to things before they escalate. But we need to work together to stop antisocial behaviour and I hope that this week, raises awareness, supports victims and makes others more aware of those around them.
