Dealing with Anti-Social Behaviour is one of the top priorities for Northumbria's Police & Crime Commissioner, Vera Baird QC, as outlined in the Police & Crime Plan 2013-18.
What is anti-social behaviour?
Anti-social behaviour is any aggressive, intimidating or destructive activity that damages another person's quality of life. Whilst young people are often perceived to be the main offenders, it covers a whole host of crime and behaviour, from inconsiderate parking to noisy parties.
How to report an incident
If there is any danger or risk to life, a crime is in progress or the attendance of the police is urgent, dial 999. To report all other crimes or incidents, or for general information and advice, call 101 or text 07786 200 814.
For the deaf and hard of hearing, text 1800 101815. You can use this service to notify us if you are the victim or have witnessed any non-emergency incident occurring within the Northumbria Police area. This may include race, hate or homophobic offences. Police staff are experienced, dedicated and fully trained in the investigation of these types of crimes and work in partnership with other agencies to provide a completely victim-focused, supportive and confidential service.
