Wiltshire anti-social behaviour strategy unveiled

Police and Wiltshire Council have pledged to respond to complaints of anti-social behaviour in three days.

The force says it gets about 60 calls a day reporting anti-social behaviour and criminal damage.

A new strategy for the county was unveiled on Tuesday.

Council leader Jane Scott said problems needed to be dealt with before they escalated. People are being urged to report incidents to police and through the council's website.

Councillor Keith Humphries said: "Tackling anti-social behaviour is everyone's responsibility and we all need to work together to enable all members of our community to live their lives without fear of crime."

The strategy is being implemented by the county's Community Safety Partnership, made up of representatives from Wiltshire Council, Wiltshire Police, Wiltshire Police Authority, Wiltshire Fire and Rescue Service, the NHS, Probation Trust and Wiltshire Youth Offending Service.
