Reporting antisocial behaviour
If antisocial behaviour (ASB) is causing alarm or distress to you or the community where you live you should report this to the Camden Community Safety Team.
We take all reports seriously and follow a set procedure once we receive a report. Once your report is made, you will receive a reference number and acknowledgment of your report within 48hours.
What types of ASB should be reported?

- drug related ASB (drug use, dealing)
- youth related ASB
- threatening behaviour, verbal and physical threats and abuse
- vandalism and property damage.
- using a property to sell drugs or for any other illegal activity

What happens after I report antisocial behaviour?
Your report will be logged by Contact Camden and allocated to an officer in Community Safety
Once we receive your report we may ask for further information from you, other services or partners.
You should receive an email with details of the action taken and a reference number that you can use in any future communications.
We consider factors such as:
- how serious your complaint is
- how often the problem has occurred
- whether there has been other complaints about the ASB
