What is a Community Trigger?
Community Trigger gives victims and communities the right to request a review of their case and bring agencies together to take a joined up, problem solving approach to find a resolution.
If Community Trigger threshold is met agencies will share information, review what action has been taken and decide if additional actions are possible.
Who can use the Community Trigger?
- A victim of anti-social behaviour or another person acting on behalf of the victim.
- An individual acting on behalf of a group of residents or community group.
How to activate the Community Trigger?
- Contact Hampshire Constabulary on non-emergency number 101 or email firstname.lastname@example.org
Community Trigger threshold:
Individual – Three complaints in the previous six months. Reporting behaviour causing harassment, alarm or distress to a member or members of the community and you think no action has been taken or are not satisfied with the action taken.
Group – Five individuals in a local community have reported separately similar incidents of anti-social behaviour to members of the Community Safety Partnership. They all think that no action has been taken or are not satisfied with the action taken. The individual acting on behalf of the group must have all other individuals consent.
To meet the criteria incidents need to:
- Cause harassment, alarm or distress.
- Been logged within one month of the incident.
- Last incident has occurred within the previous six months.
The Community Safety Partnership should aim to have Community Triggers dealt with within 20 working days. More complex cases may take longer, in these cases the individual or group will be notified that the deadline date will not be met.
Call on 101 or in an emergency always call 999

Hampshire Police and Crime Commissioner
The mission of a Police and Crime Commissioner is to oversee and scrutinise policing.
Commissioners are a voice for the people, someone to lead the fight against crime, and someone to hold to account if they don’t deliver.
They will not run the police force – operational police business is a matter for the Chief Constable. But the Commissioner can and will hold the Chief Constable to account.
