Antisocial behaviour

Antisocial behaviour is defined as 'behaviour by a person which causes, or is likely to cause, harassment, alarm or distress to persons not of the same household as the person'.

How to report antisocial behaviour

If you're an Enfield Council housing tenant or leaseholder, see Antisocial behaviour.

If you are a housing association tenant, it is vital that you report any antisocial behaviour you have experienced in and around your property to your housing provider in the first instance.

If you privately rent, please contact your landlord or managing agent in the first instance.

You can contact the antisocial behaviour team by emailing or by calling 020 8379 4612 where you will be required to leave your name, address, telephone number and brief reason for your call on voicemail.

Reporting to the police

You can report antisocial behaviour to the police. For urgent enquiries where there is an immediate risk, call 999. For non-urgent enquiries call 101 or, you can make a report online.

For more information, visit What is antisocial behaviour? - Metropolitan Police.

Reporting anonymously

You can report a crime anonymously to CrimeStoppers on 0800 555111 or visit Giving information - CrimeStoppers.

CrimeStoppers is not the police. If you require urgent police attention, please dial 999.

Antisocial behaviour case review

The Antisocial Behaviour Crime and Policing Act 2014 gives victims and communities the right to request a review of their case and bring agencies together to take a joined up, problem-solving approach to find a solution.

If this is the case, you can request a review under an antisocial behaviour case review (previously known as 'Community Trigger').

We ask you to provide us with details of the past incidents you have reported, including the dates you previously made reports, any reference numbers you have been given, and the names of any officers or teams you've been in contact with.

You can request an antisocial behaviour case review by emailing (quoting 'Antisocial behaviour case review’).

What happens next

Once you've contacted us quoting ‘Antisocial behaviour case review’, you'll receive an initial response within 3 working days. We will then contact you to confirm if your report has met the threshold and details of how we will conduct the review.

An antisocial behaviour case review is only for people who have reported the same antisocial behaviour to the council, police or a registered housing provider 3 times in the last 6 months and consider that no action has been taken.
