Anti-Social Behaviour

Anti-social behaviour is an aggressive and destructive activity that intimidates, threatens and causes distress. It damages the quality of life for individuals, families and communities.

Examples of anti-social behaviour include:

  • Rowdy, noisy behaviour

  • Dealing or buying drugs on the street
  • Aggressive begging
  • Street drinking
  • Setting off fireworks late at night
  • Vandalism, graffiti and fly-posting
  • Fly tipping
  • Street prostitution

Report anti-social behaviour by ringing the police on 101, or 999 if it is an emergency.

You can also report anti-social behaviour to CrimeStoppers on 0800 555 111, or there is a reporting form on the Rochdale Council website – www.rochdale.gov.uk
