Anti Social Behaviour

Monitoring Group is committed to working with the community, the police and other agencies to tackle anti-social behaviour.

If you are registered disabled or vulnerable we may be able to arrange for an officer to visit you at home.

Making life better

Monitoring Group’ anti-social behaviour (ASB) strategy aims to prevent race crime and all forms of anti-social behaviour. We are creating a climate where any form of ASB will not be tolerated and where perpetrators are dealt with promptly and effectively.

In July 2017, the anti social behaviour and tenancy teams merged and continue to be supported by separate teams of  neighbourhood housing wardens concierges. Our approach to tackling anti-social behaviour is a careful balance between firm punitive action and preventative measures.

We investigate reports of anti-social behaviour and take action to stop it, pay for projects to improve your community and make your estates more secure with improved lighting or door entry systems

Punitive action

Monitoring Group’ success in dealing with ASB continues to improve. We use the full range of powers available to us including evictions, possession orders, acceptable behaviour contracts (ABC), parental control agreements (PCA), antisocial behaviour orders (ASBO), Notices of Seeking Possession (NOSP) injunctions and demotion orders

Preventative measures

Monitoring Group in partnership with Communities Initiatives Partnership (CIP) annually contributes a sum of money to a football programme on a variety of estates throughout the borough. The free football sessions give young people from different social & economic backgrounds the chance to build positive relationships as well as challenging them physically. This provides a diversion from less beneficial activities.

The neighbourhood wardens scheme provides a presence on our estates that will reduce the fear of crime, tackle anti-social behaviour and build community relationships. The service covers key estates across the borough.

Our concierges in tower blocks provide a valuable first point of contact for residents in tower blocks. Concierges ensure that only those with a legitimate reason to be there are able to enter the building and they assist our specialist teams with information on incidents of ASB.
