Community Trigger – Giving Victims a Say

The Anti-social Behaviour, Crime and Policing Act 2014 includes a new measure, the community trigger, which is designed to give victims and communities a say in the way anti-social behaviour is dealt with.

The community trigger gives victims the ability to demand action, starting with a review of their case, where the locally defined threshold is met.

The trigger should be used if you believe your complaint has not been appropriately addressed or no action has been taken. The trigger cannot be used to report general acts of crime, including hate crime.
