Anti Social Behaviour

If you are experiencing problems with anti-social behaviour, or other community safety issues you can contact Breckland Council on 01362 656870 or call the non-emergency number 101. In an emergency always call 999.

Everyone has a right to live free from and without the fear of anti social behaviour and crime. The Breckland district is generally a very safe area in which to live and work, but occasionally problems arise in communities which may require a multi agency approach to resolve. 

What is anti-social behaviour?

Anti-social behaviour covers a wide range of unacceptable activity that causes harm to an individual, to their community or to their environment. This could be an action by someone else that leaves you feeling alarmed, harassed or distressed. It also includes fear of crime or concern for public safety, public disorder or public nuisance.
