Community Trigger

Brighton & Hove Division is taking part in the Community Trigger pilot which gives victims and communities the right to require action is taken where an ongoing anti-social behaviour problem has not been addressed.  It helps us and you by making sure that no-one suffering the harmful effects of anti-social behaviour and hate crime falls through the net.

Responding to and tackling anti-social behaviour and hate motivated incidents are a top priority for Brighton & Hove. The city has strong mechanisms which allow the police, the council, housing providers, other organisations and communities to work in partnership with each other to tackle anti-social behaviour and hate incidents. At the moment this system is being piloted in four different areas in England and is an initiative which is led by the Home Office.

Who can use Community Trigger?

Anyone can use the Community Trigger if their concern is about anti-social behaviour or a hate incident / crime and meets the criteria below:

Either

  • You have reported the issue or concern at least once before

and

  • no action has been taken

and

  • more than one week has passed since you reported the issue or concern;

Or

  • The issue or concern affects more than one household or business premises.

How do I use the Community Trigger?

If you think you that your issue or concern is relevant to the Community Trigger system and meets the criteria, you will need to visit Brighton & Hove City Council's website and fill out the Community Trigger online referral form.

You will receive an automatic response, when you submit your form.

Your form will then be assessed within one working day and you will be contacted.  If your referral meets the criteria, an officer from an appropriate lead agency (in discussion with you) will review your situation and agree appropriate actions with you within five working days.
