Putting Victims First - the Community Trigger

Community Trigger is a new way you can tell us if you're concerned that we've not acted against reports of anti-social behaviour (ASB).

Anti-social behaviour reports are taken seriously. The anti-social behaviour team work together with the following places to tackle this issue:

  • West Yorkshire Police
  • Wakefield and District Housing

If you feel we are not doing a good job we need you to tell us.

You can activate the Community Trigger if you believe that…

  • you have reported ASB on three occasions in the last six months and no action has been taken.
  • different victims have made reports about the same problem five times in the past six months.
  • you have reported a hate incident in the last three months and no action has been taken.
