Community Trigger

The Community Trigger gives victims and communities the right to request action is taken where an ongoing anti-social behaviour or hate crime 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 Sussex Police. Across the county we have 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.

The system is an initiative which is led by the Home Office as part of the Anti-social Behaviour (ASB), Police and Crime Act in 2014 and has previously been piloted in four locations in England, including Brighton and Hove. The launch of the Act has also enabled residents to have a say in the joint-agency approach for how incidents are dealt with through the Community Remedy, as coordinated by Police & Crime Commissioners.

Who can use Community Trigger?

You can use the Community Trigger if your concern is about anti-social behaviour or a hate incident / crime, providing you, or the person who you are reporting on behalf of, has been a victim of three separate incidents within the last six months.

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 above criteria, you need to complete the Community Trigger referral form at the bottom of this page. You will receive an automatic response when you submit your form.

Your form will then be assessed within three working days 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 ten working days. If your referral does not meet the criteria, the officer will advise you on what alternatives might be appropriate for your case.

What if my concern is council related, for example housing?

If your issue is not necessarily police-related, you should contact your local authority using the links below:
