Anti-social behaviour

Anti-social behaviour

Antisocial behaviour (sometimes shortened to ASB) is defined as 'behaviour by a person which causes, or is likely to cause, harassment, alarm or distress to persons not of the same household as the person'.

ASB comes in many forms with varying effects on people. Incidents can be a one-off, or they might form a pattern of events. Either way, it can have a devastasting impact on a person or community.

You can report ASB to the police by calling 101 or to the East Riding of Yorkshire Council by clicking here.
