Victims of anti-social behaviour are being asked to help Police improve their service by giving their feedback in a new survey.

The Derbyshire force want to hear about your experience of reporting anti-social behaviour (ASB) to them and the support you received.

Chief Inspector Paul Stevenson said: “This survey is part of our commitment to tackling anti-social behaviour in Derbyshire and supporting the victims.

“We know that ASB can often have a lasting effect on communities, so this survey will help us further understand the impact on victims, and how the police action has been received.

“Please take the time to complete the survey if you have reported ASB to us in the past twelve months – your responses will help form our future approaches.”

Please complete the survey online.

Anti-social behaviour covers a wide range of activities, such as nuisances involving noise or animals, fire setting and vandalism.

Derbyshire Police and Crime Commissioner Angelique Foster said: “People want to see a strong and robust approach to anti-social behaviour.

“This is why I have prioritised the issue in my Police and Crime Plan and continue to monitor the force’s performance while investing specific funds in targeted preventative work in the heart of our communities.

“This survey is a positive step and will provide further insight into the impact of anti-social behaviour on victims while also identifying how best we can meet their needs. I urge anyone affected by anti-social behaviour to share their experiences and help us to shape future support.”

Further information on Derbyshire Constabulary’s approach to ASB, and how other organisations work in partnership with us to tackle this, is available on the ASB Hub.

Part of this partnership approach is working with Derbyshire Victim Services, who offer support to victims of anti-social behaviour.

This might be by giving a victim the opportunity to talk to someone about how they’re feeling or linking them with a range of specialist support agencies.

ASB can have a financial, physical, and psychological impact, and Derbyshire Victim Services is there to support victims if they need it.

For further details please visit the Derbyshire Victim Services website.
