ASB and Crime Reporting

ASB Reporting

The law defines anti-social behaviour as an act that causes or is likely to cause harassment, alarm or distress to any person, or nuisance or annoyance if related to housing. What this means in practical terms is that it helps us challenge and protect people from the behaviour of another that unreasonably impacts on their quality of life.

All complaints are assessed in relation to the potential threat, risk and harm that could be caused to any person or property. Our resources must be focused on situations that pose the highest degrees of threat, risk and harm to ensure those most vulnerable to such anti-social behaviour and its impact are assisted in the first instance. The types of ASB we deal with include:

  • Use or threatened use of violence
  • Abusive or foul language
  • Hate crime
  • Damage to property
  • Loud music from residential property *

Torbay Council would like to invite local residents to participate in raising any concerns about the condition of properties and/or related anti- social behaviour issues in the Melville area.
