Important changes to how you report antisocial behaviour

26 Jan

On Thursday 1 February, there will be important changes to the way Sheffield residents report antisocial behaviour issues.

From this date, you will need to report certain antisocial behaviour issues, such as noise nuisance, non-hate crime related graffiti and lost, stray or barking dogs, to Sheffield City Council, not to South Yorkshire Police. You can do this by calling 0114 2734567 or visiting sheffield.gov.uk/asb

A full breakdown of antisocial behaviour issues and whose responsibility these are can be found below:

South Yorkshire Police Sheffield City Council
Begging Abandoned vehicles / parking issues
Dealing/taking drugs and drinking alcohol in the street Dead animals
Gangs and youths drinking in parks Dog fouling
Harassment or intimidation Fly posting
Fly-tipping (happening now) Dumped, fly-tipped waste (nobody present)
Hate Crime related graffiti (motivated by prejudice or intolerance towards an individual’s nationality, ethnicity, religion, gender, identity, sexual orientation or disability) Graffiti (Non Hate Crime related)
Misuse of fireworks Syringes or needles
Dangerous, out of control dogs Lost, stray or barking dogs
Threatening / violent neighbour disputes Noise disputes, nuisance or DIY related noise
Prostitution and indecent behaviour Syringes or needles
Vandalism Littering
Suspicious vehicles  
Hoax calls to emergency services  

As well as these changes, from 1 February, if you call 0114 2734567 out of standard office hours to report concerns for vulnerable adults and children, and matters relating to homeless people, you will be dealt with by a Sheffield City Council call handler, not a police call handler.

For more information on reporting antisocial behaviour issues, and the responsibility of Sheffield City Council and South Yorkshire Police from 1 February, please visit sheffield.gov.uk/asb or southyorks.police.uk/101
