The Community Trigger
When and how to use the Community Trigger
The Safer Hastings Partnership, which includes the police, the council and registered housing providers, works together to tackle anti-social behaviour and hate incidents.
If you believe that appropriate action has not been taken to tackle anti-social behaviour or hate incidents you have reported, you can use the Community Trigger process to ask agencies to review their response to you.
If you have reported three separate incidents within the past six months to the police, the council or your housing provider you can activate the Community Trigger for yourself, or on behalf of someone else if you have their written consent, using the following form:
You can also request a paper copy of the form by calling 01424 451066.
The Community Trigger is designed to ensure that there is a review where cases have been reported. It is not a complaints procedure.
If your case meets these criteria you will be notified within three working days. Your case will be reviewed and recommendations may be made as to how the case can progress. This will be reported to you within ten working days.
