Anti-Social Behaviour Case Review (Community Trigger) procedure

Sub heading

ASBO youth

​Ongoing anti-social behaviour causing harassment, alarm, or distress to members of the public in Luton may need further intervention by organisations such as the council, Police, health organisation, and registered social landlords.

Together they may be able to find a solution by completing a joint case review and action plan. Victims and/or complainants are entitled to apply for a review of their case if they feel the problem has not been resolved, despite having previously reported it to one or more agencies and even if those agencies had supported a joint action plan.

The Anti-Social Behaviour, Crime and Policing Act 2014, sets out the requirement for local authorities and others to make arrangements for, and to carry out, Anti-Social Behaviour Case Reviews – otherwise known as the ‘Community Trigger’. There are certain criteria that need to be met in order for anti-social behaviour cases to be considered for a case review, which is explained in the attached document entitled ‘ASB Case Review procedure’. 

Also attached is an application form. Once completed the form should be e-mailed to [email protected]. The procedure is administered by Luton Council on behalf of partner agencies.
Enquires about the procedure, or to apply for a postal application form, can be made to the following specific points of contact:
Community Safety Team
Telephone: 01582 546000

Alternatively a postal application form can be obtained by writing to the following address:

Annual reviews

The Anti-Social Behaviour, Crime and Policing Act 2014 sets out the requirement for agencies, including us, to make arrangements for and to carry out anti-social behaviour case reviews – otherwise known as the ‘Community Trigger’.

Together these agencies can review anti-social behaviour cases and consider actions that could be taken in order to find a solution for the victim or complainant. The reviews focus on the current situation and what else could be done, and not as a complaints procedure.

At the end of each financial year, we will publish data relating to the case reviews. In 2018-19, to date, one application was made (July 2018) and one case review was carried out, which resulted in no recommendations being made.
