Community trigger

 

What is a community trigger?

 A community trigger gives victims and communities the right to request a review of their case and bring agencies together to take a joined up, problem-solving approach to find a resolution. 

If the community trigger threshold is met, agencies, including the Council, Police, Clinical Commissioning Groups and Registered Social Landlords, will share information, review what action had been taken and decide if additional actions are required.

 

Who can initiate the community trigger?

  • A victim of anti-social behaviour or another person's acting on behalf of the victim. 
  • An individual acting on behalf of a group of residents or community group.

 

What is the community trigger threshold?

If you are raising the trigger as an individual, you must have made 3 reports in the previous 6 months of behaviour causing harassment, alarm or distress to an authority or agency and think no action has been taken or are not satisfied with the action taken. 

If you are raising the trigger as representative of a group, 5 individuals in a local community must have reported, separately, similar incidents of anti-social behaviour to an authority or agency and believe that no action has been taken or are not satisfied with the action taken.  The individual acting on behalf of the group must have all other individuals consent in order to raise the trigger.

To meet the criteria, incidents need to:

  • Have caused harassment, alarm or distress.
  • Been logged within one month of the incident with the last incident occurring within the previous 6 months. 

 

How to raise a community trigger

You can either contact Hampshire Constabulary by calling 101 (non-emergency number) or email communitytrigger@hampshire.pnn.police.uk

You will need to provide details of each time you've complained, who you've complained to (name, organisation and/or incident reference number) and information about the anti-social behaviour.

If you have an on-going complaint that is being dealt with, your case is not appropriate for the community trigger.
