Community outreach week will target antisocial behaviour

A week dedicated to helping residents raise and resolve community issues and tackle anti-social behaviour (ASB) starts on Monday. 

Not Where I Live Week (July 3 – 9) sees Hull City Council’s Neighbourhood Nuisance Team, alongside colleagues from Humberside Police, head out into communities, creating opportunities for people to talk about any problems they may be experiencing.

Drop-in surgeries, patch walks, patrols, giveaways, events and question-and-answer sessions have been organised. Events are spread across the city to ensure as many people as possible have the chance to take part.

The council’s Neighbourhood Nuisance team works with residents to solve issues that affect their communities. In 2022 they received just over 3,200 calls about antisocial behaviour and provided support to more than 3,100 victims and witnesses. In total, 1,358 perpetrators of antisocial behaviour were dealt with and 2,795 formal and informal sanctions were used to tackle the problem. 

They have enforcement officers working across the city and work closely with Humberside Police to resolve and tackle problems faced by individuals and communities.

The council is also urging community groups, residents and others to make use of the Crime Prevention Fund, created last year and used to fund community safety projects across the city.

Cllr Dave McCobb, Portfolio Holder for Community Safety said: “Making Hull safer is one of our top priorities. That’s why we have set up a new Crime Prevention Fund that residents can access to make their areas safer.

“The Police and the Council always want to hear from people it they have problems with crime and antisocial behaviour. But we don’t want to stop there – we want to come to you.

“As part of being a listening Council, I’m urging residents to get involved with Not Where I Live Week. This week will see the council get out into communities right across the city to provide opportunities for people to speak directly and safely to our Neighbourhood Nuisance Teams and the police about their experiences of antisocial behaviour.  

“Residents’ views and their ability to feel safe and comfortable in their communities is a priority for us, that’s why we’re getting out into those communities to listen to local people.”
