Anti-social behaviour ruins lives and is not tolerated in Cambridgeshire. We work closely with partner agencies, including local councils, to target and tackle anti-social issues within our communities so that offenders face justice and victims receive a better quality of life.
Examples of anti-social behaviour include;
- rowdy, noisy behaviour
- night time noise from houses or gardens, particularly between 11pm and 7am
- threatening and/or drunken behaviour
- vandalism, graffiti and fly-posting
- dealing or buying drugs on the streets
- littering and/or fly-tipping
- aggressive begging
- drinking on the street
- setting off fireworks late at night
- abandoning cars on the street.

How we manage anti-social behaviour
In many cases, anti-social behaviour can be resolved without the need for legal action. Instead, our officers can issue warnings and penalties which commonly include;
Local councils also play a key part in dealing with anti-social behaviour issues that aren’t criminal offences, such as abandoned vehicles. Find your local council to see how they are tackling anti-social behaviour in your area.
Alternatively, if an anti-social behaviour issue involves a tenant or a property of a registered social landlord or housing association, the landlord can take action against the person committing the anti-social behaviour by working with the police and the local authority to ensure appropriate action is taken to solve the problem.
A victim of Anti Social Behaviour has the right to have their case reviewed once it has been closed and where it meets the threshold. In order to do this a victim can use the Community Trigger which is found through the Local Council Website, see links below;
