Anti-social behaviour

Dear Residents

We are working hard to tackle anti-social behaviour (ASB) in Brookes Avenue and the surrounding areas.

We will be carrying out extra patrols in the area to offer reassurance to residents and to identify and deal with those found to be carrying out this behaviour.

If you have any information that might help us with this issue please contact us on lawleyandoverdale.snt@westmercia.police.uk


Anti-social behaviour covers a wide range of unacceptable activity that causes harm to an individual, to their community or to their environment. This could be an action by someone else that leaves you feeling alarmed, harassed or distressed. It also includes fear of crime or concern for public safety, public disorder or public nuisance.

Examples of anti-social behaviour include:


  • Nuisance, rowdy or inconsiderate neighbours
  • Vandalism, graffiti and fly-posting
  • Street drinking
  • Environmental damage including littering, dumping of rubbish and abandonment of cars
  • Prostitution related activity
  • Begging andvagrancy
  • Fireworksmisuse
  • Inconsiderate or inappropriate use of vehicles

    If you are experiencing problems with anti-social behaviour, or have any concerns about it, or other community safety issues, you should contact your local council or report this to us online. In an emergency, if you or your property are at risk or a crime is in progress call 999.

    The police, local authorities and other community safety partner agencies, such as Fire & Rescue and social housing landlords, all have a responsibility to deal with anti-social behaviour and to help people who are suffering from it.

    If you have information regarding ASB please let us know using the online ‘Tell Us About’ form on our website www.westmercia.police.uk

    If you aren’t comfortable contacting us directly, you can pass on information anonymously to the independent charity, Crimestoppers, by calling 0800 555 111 or by visiting their website: www.crimestoppers-uk.org


    Thank you for your help. It is only by the police and the public working together that we can prevent and detect crime. 

    Kind regards,
