How to report Anti-Social Behaviour

You can report anti-social behaviour:

To enable us to fully investigate reports of anti-social behaviour it is important that you provide as much information as possible when submitting your report including the names and addresses of those responsible for the nuisance.

Dealing with Anti-Social Behaviour and Breaches of Tenancy

If the complaint is of a minor nature, we would request in the first instance that you attempt to resolve the matter yourself. Should this be not possible then we would deal with it by writing to or speaking to the resident concerned.

In most cases of anti-social behaviour or breaches of tenancy once it is brought to the offender’s attention it is often resolved. However, if anti-social behaviour or breaches of tenancy continue and all other actions fail to resolve the issue, we may refer the case to the court for them to resolve which can take time. In some cases, we will work in partnership with other agencies including the States of Jersey Police to resolve the situation through the above process.

If your complaint is of a criminal nature, then it must be reported to the police in the first instance on 612612. The police will issue you with a reference number which we will require when you log the complaint with us. Please note, at this stage we will take no further action. If further incidents occur, please continue to report these to us both so that a history of events can be collected.

If you wish to remain anonymous, you should contact Crimestoppers free of charge on 0800 555 111. Crimestoppers allows you to anonymously give information to the police that may help solve a crime. When you contact Crimestoppers you will never be asked for your name or address, and your call cannot be traced.
