Coronavirus (Covid-19): We're asking you please to only call 999 if it is an emergency and 101 if it is urgent. If you can, use our online services. If you’re looking for information about the government instruction to stay at home and how that may affect you, you'll find guidance on Gov.uk. We’ll be updating information on our services over the coming days, please check online for those updates.
Antisocial behaviour can have a lasting impact on neighbourhoods and communities as it often leads to an increase in crime, particularly violence and criminal damage. If you’ve witnessed antisocial behaviour of any kind, report it using our quick and simple online tool.
Is it an emergency?
Does it feel like the situation could get heated or violent very soon? Is someone in immediate danger? Do you need support right away? If so, please call 999 now.
If you're deaf or hard of hearing, use our textphone service 18000 or text us on 999 if you’ve pre-registered with the emergencySMS service.
Dealing with unwanted cold callers
Unannounced visits by people to your home to sell goods or services (sometimes called 'cold visits' or 'cold calls') are not illegal, but you can deter these individuals by putting a sticker or notice on your door saying that you don't wish to receive cold visits.
If you’re getting unwanted cold phonecalls, we recommend contacting your phone service provider. They should be able to suggest several ways to screen and block incoming calls. You might also consider registering with the Telephone Preference Service.
If the visits or calls continue, the next step would be to contact the individual’s company to make a complaint.
