Anti-social behaviour

Community Triggers

A Community Trigger is a way for you to ask the Community Safety Partnership to review responses to incidents of anti-social behaviour.

Community Triggers have been introduced to help ensure that agencies are working together to resolve anti-social behaviour that’s affecting residents’ quality of life.

A Community Trigger isn’t intended to replace the existing complaints procedures of other organisations including the Independent Office of Police Conduct, previously known as the Independent Police Complaints Commission, and the Local Government Ombudsman. You can still use these organisations’ complaints procedures to raise a complaint directly.


We’ll provide the number of Community Trigger applications we're received and a summary of the findings from each to the Swale Community Safety Partnership, which includes ourselves and other organisations, as well as the Office of the Kent Police and Crime Commissioner.
