Campaign to tackle anti-social behaviour in Ashfield is launched!‘Together we can make this an area to be proud of’
Nottinghamshire Police and Ashfield District Council are driving home the message that anti-social behaviour is unacceptable as part of a hard-hitting campaign called Respect for Ashfield.
The first of many new measures includes a booklet delivered to all households in the district, which aims to make people aware of how and who to report anti-social behaviour to.
The booklet, entitled ‘Saying ‘NO’ to Anti-Social Behaviour’, is a guide to the standards and services people can expect from the Police and the council if they are a victim or witness of anti-social behaviour.
The aim of the booklet is to reassure residents that the council and police are united in their determination to tackle the problem.
The booklet provides guidance on who can offer support, for example Victim Support, if an incident takes place and what action will be taken and support provided by the council or police.
Through the campaign, Ashfield District Council, Nottinghamshire Police and other partner agencies, are aiming to reduce the amount of nuisance behaviour across local neighbourhoods and parks.
The council’s Head of Neighbourhood Services, Edd deCoverly, said: “We are delivering this booklet to every household in the district because we want our residents to know that we are getting tough on anti-social behaviour.
“Ashfield District Council, Ashfield Homes, Nottinghamshire Police and Nottinghamshire Fire Service are united in tackling those who cause persistent problems and this booklet tells our communities how we intend to support them if they become a victim.
“By working together we can create more Respect for Ashfield, and make this an area we can all be proud of.”
