Safer New Forest partnership


What the partnership does to tackle reported anti-social behaviour 

 All calls to 999 are assessed by the police and officers are tasked according to priority. 

Calls to 101 that relate to anti-social behaviour are tasked to the police officers in the relevant neighbourhood policing team.  Where identified and appropriate the details of the call are also passed to the community safety team at New Forest District Council. 

The community safety team will write to all people who report a problem explaining that we have been notified of the report.  Everyone will be offered a community diary if the behaviour is something that is not a 'one-off'. 

The community safety team work closely with other agencies such as, police, housing and environmental health to support you and put a stop to the anti-social behaviour.  Each case is dealt with on its own merits and as such may be dealt with by one or more of our partner agencies as described, you will be informed who is the lead contact.
