Community Trigger

The Community Trigger was introduced by the Anti-social Behaviour, Crime and Policing Act 2014.  Its purpose is to provide an opportunity for victims of persistent anti-social behaviour to request a review of actions taken by agencies when they feel these actions have not been adequate to resolve the anti-social behaviour.

What is the threshold for review?

Victims of anti-social behaviour must have reported to the local authority, Police or registered social landlord at least three separate incidents in the last 6 months. Victims of hate crime must have made one complaint in the last 6 months.

For the Community Trigger to be activated incidents must have been reported to agencies within one month of the incident occurring to allow a timely adequate response. The application to activate the Community Trigger must be made within six months of a reported incident.

How can the Community Trigger be activated?

If you believe your complaint meets the criteria for the Community Trigger you will need to complete an application form. 

You can request an application from the Safer Caerphilly Community Safety Partnership by calling 01443 811307, sending an e-mail to  or writing to:
