Community Trigger

South Wales Community Trigger

In response to recent legislation, the South Wales Community Trigger has been launched to give victims of anti-social behaviour the right to have their case reviewed.

This is a joint initiative between local authorities, South Wales Police, South Wales Police and Crime Commissioner, local health boards and registered social landlords.

For the purposes of the Community Trigger, anti-social behaviour is defined as ‘behaviour causing harassment, alarm or distress to members or any member of the public’.

The Community Trigger allows victims of persistent anti-social behaviour, who have previously reported incidents to one or more agencies, to request a review of their case where they feel the actions taken have not been adequate.

Activating the Community Trigger will bring relevant agencies together to share information, review the actions that have been taken and try to reach a solution that will hopefully prevent similar incidents from happening again.

South Wales Police and Crime Commissioner, Alun Michael, said:

“We take a pride at South Wales Police in putting victims at the heart of our approach and providing a strong and swift response to anti-social behaviour.

“The Community Trigger is one of a number of measures that we are putting in place in South Wales to support those who are victims of anti-social behaviour. We have been working closely with our partners to agree a consistent approach so that members of the public receive the same service no matter where they choose to request a review.”

The process of the activating the Community Trigger is a short application form available online or through local authorities, health boards and registered social landlords. The application will then be reviewed by a Trigger Coordinator. If the application meets the criteria, a multiagency panel will be brought together to review the case.
