We are asking victims of anti-social behaviour to tell us what they think in a new survey that will help shape our approach for the future.
Anyone who has reported anti-social behaviour (ASB) to the police in the past twelve months is invited to share their views.
Chief Inspector Paul Stevenson said: “We’d like to thank all the respondents who’ve taken the time to give us their views so far.
“Your responses have been invaluable in understanding the service that we’re currently offering to victims of anti-social behaviour.
“ASB situations can often be unique to a community, and each victim can experience the impact differently. This is why it’s so important to hear from those who have reported it to us about how they feel.”
The survey, which is open for responses until the end of December, will be used to inform the approach of policing teams in tackling ASB and providing support for victims.
Derbyshire Constabulary also works in partnership with Derbyshire Victim Services to help victims of anti-social behaviour. The support provided may just be a friendly chat, connecting with specialist support organisations, or help towards getting compensation for damages as a result of ASB.
