The Government defines domestic abuse as:”Any incident of threatening behaviour, violence or abuse (psychological, physical, sexual, financial or emotional) between adults who are or have been intimate partners or family members, regardless of gender or sexuality.”
Anti-social Behaviour covers a wide range of acts that can include verbal abuse, vandalism, joyriding, noise nuisance, criminal damage, assault, throwing missiles, underage drinking, engaging in threatening behaviour in groups or harassment of residents or passers-by.
If you are a victim of antisocial behaviour, and wish to report it please use the Police number 101.
Have you or someone you know been a victim of a hate crime or hate incident? Hate crimes and incidents come in many different forms. It can be because of hatred on the grounds of your race, religion, sexual orientation, transgender identity or disability. Hate crime in any form is wrong. That is why it is important that if hate crime happens to you or someone you know, that you report it, either to the Police, or anonymously.
If you are a victim of crime associated with your race, religion or beliefs, disability, sexual orientation or gender identity, you can report it confidentially here.
