What is anti-social behaviour?

Anti-social Behaviour (ASB) in Lincoln is defined as ‘anything that causes (or is likely to cause) harassment alarm and/or distress to persons not of the same household’. This means any behaviour that effects your quality of life in a negative way which is caused by a person you do not live with.

ASB may be criminal in nature, for example criminal damage, but this may not always be the case. ASB may affect one household, but may affect many members of the community.

Types of ASB include, but are not limited to:

  • Noise nuisance
  • Verbal abuse
  • Gathering in groups
  • Damage to property
  • Rubbish or litter lying about
  • Being drunk or rowdy in public
  • Graffiti
  • People using or dealing drugs

You can report anti-social behaviour by using the online form.
