The Community Safety Partnership, including West Berkshire Council and Thames Valley Police are working together to introduce Community Trigger as part of the Anti-Social Behaviour Crime and Policing Act 2014.

The Community Trigger which comes into effect on 20th October 2014, is intended to enable victims of persistent anti-social behaviour to request a review of their case, and brings agencies together to take a joined up, problem-solving approach to find a solution.

If you have already reported anti-social behaviour to West Berkshire Council, Thames Valley Police or your housing association, and feel that the issue has not been resolved, you can request a Community Trigger review of your case*

To request a Community Trigger review, please contact us via:

Phone: 01635 264650

*In order to activate the trigger the following criteria apply:-

  • At least 3 reports from one person, within a 6 month period


  • 5 reports from different people, within a 6 month period
