Community Trigger 

A Community Trigger gives victims the ability to request a review of their case, where the locally defined threshold is met.  
If you have already reported three incidents of anti-social behaviour in the last six months to the council, police or your social housing provider and feel that the issues have not been resolved, you can request a Community Trigger review of your case. 
If you would like to request a Community Trigger please complete the online Community Trigger Request Form below. 

Terrorist Activity 

Every year thousands of reports from the public help the police keep communities safe from terrorism. 
If you’ve seen or heard something that could potentially be related to terrorism, trust your instincts and report it. Your actions could save lives. 
In an emergency, or if you need urgent police assistance, you should always dial 999
You can also report suspicious activity by contacting the police in confidence on 0800 789 321.  

Hate Crime 

What is hate crime? 
A hate crime is when someone commits a crime against you because of your disability, gender identity, race, sexual orientation, religion, or any other perceived difference.  
It doesn’t always include physical violence. Someone using offensive language towards you or harassing you because of who you are, or who they think you are, is also a crime.  
The same goes for someone posting abusive or offensive messages about you online.
