We have joined a national campaign to tackle anti-social behaviour (ASB) and keep people in Hertsmere safe.
Running from 18 to 22 July, ASB Awareness Week 2022 aims to encourage communities to take a stand against anti-social behaviour and highlight the actions that can be taken by those experiencing it.
Organised by Resolve, the UK’s leading ASB and community safety organisation, the week features a series of events all across the UK involving councils, police forces, housing associations, charities, community groups and sports clubs.
We will be using our social media channels to share examples of the work that has been done to make the borough safer, including:
The installation of new CCTV cameras in Borehamwood Outcomes from the Adult and Youth Multi-Agency Risk Reduction Group Promotion of activities for youths Recent YouGov research commissioned by Resolve found that more than half of people (56%) believe that ‘more needs to be done’ to tackle anti-social behaviour in their community.
However, after they witnessed or experienced anti-social behaviour, a similar proportion of the public (57%) said that they did not report it to anyone.
We are urging members of the public not to suffer in silence if they experience anti-social behaviour. Incidents can be reported to our Community Safety Team or to the police if there is an immediate risk or danger.
Our Community Safety Team will be attending events across the borough during ASB Awareness Week 2022, including the Hertfordshire Satellite Law Clinic at Borehamwood Foodbank and engagements being held by the Hertsmere Safer Neighbourhood Policing Teams.
