    Cumbria Community Safety Partnership, which includes the Police, the Council and registered housing providers, work together to tackle anti-social behavior and hate incidents.

    Anti–Social Behaviour (ASB) is defined as ‘behaviour causing harassment, alarm or distress’ to members of the public and is a broad term describing day- to-day incidents of crime, nuisance and disorder that can make the lives of those that suffer it a misery.

    Hate incidents are defined as any criminal offence which is perceived by the victim or any other person to be motivated by hostility or prejudice based on a personal characteristic, (race, religion, disability, sexual orientation or transgender identity).

    The Community Trigger is a process you can use to ask agencies to review their response to anti-social behavior or hate incidents you have reported.

    • The reported problems have not been appropriately investigated. 
    • Your vulnerability and/or the potential for harm has not been considered and this has affected potential service delivery.
