Message from North Yorkshire Police:

Reporting all incidents of anti-social behaviour to the police will allow us to build a picture of what is happening in the area you live and take the appropriate action.

The term anti-social behaviour covers a wide range of unacceptable activity that blights the lives of many people on a daily basis. It often leaves victims feeling helpless, desperate and with a seriously reduced quality of life. Terms such as ‘nuisance’, ‘disorder’ and ‘harassment’ are also often used to describe this type of behaviour.

Anti-social behaviour is defined as “Behaviour by a person which causes or is likely to cause harassment, alarm or distress to one or more persons not of the same household as the person”. (Antisocial Behaviour Act 2003 & Police Reform and Social Responsibility Act 2011).

Please report all incidents of anti-social behaviour to us on either telephone 101 or our website
