The Anti-social Behaviour, Crime and Policing Act 2014: Implementing the community trigger

This guidance sets out the statutory requirements for agencies and explores how the community trigger might be implemented locally.


The Anti-social Behaviour, Crime and Policing Act 2014 introduced significant changes to the way local authorities respond to anti-social behaviour (ASB).  The new powers include the introduction of ASB case reviews, or the ‘community trigger', which will provide victims of ASB with the right to request a review of how local agencies have responded to previous ASB complaints and consider what further action might be taken where the behaviour persists.
