Anti-social behaviour team

Who do you keep information about?

We keep information about the victims and perpetrators of anti-social behaviour.

Why do you keep information about me?

We keep information if you are a victim or perpetrator of anti-social behaviour because we have a legal obligation to deal with instances of anti-social behaviour. This obligation is set out in the Crime and Disorder Act 1998; Crime and Policing Act 2014 and meets our obligations as set out in the Victims Code of Conduct 2015.

Where we process special categories of personal data, we do this because it is necessary for reasons of substantial public interest which is set out in law.

Who can see my information?

Access to this information is restricted to officers within the Anti-social Behaviour Team. Limited access may also be given to officers in Youth Offending Service and Environmental Health.

How do you store the information you keep about me?

Information is stored securely in a database and electronically on the Council’s secure server. Some paper bases information may also be held.

How long do you keep information about me?

We keep this information for a period of 5 years. This information is destroyed securely when we no longer need it.

How did the Council get my personal data?

In some cases this information is provided by you. We may also receive information from other agencies such as the Police, education, health care professionals and other local authorities. In cases where your personal data was obtained from a source other than yourself or your representative, we will inform you of the origin of the information within 1 month, unless that information is being used to contact you, in which case, that information should be provided to you at the latest, upon first communication with you. However, it is not necessary to provide that information in cases where you already possess the information, where recording or disclosure is expressly laid down in law or where provision of the information proves impossible or would involve disproportionate effort.
