A SERIES of events marking Anti-Social Behaviour Awareness Week has taken place in Bromsgrove.

Residents learned more about the work against anti-social behaviour as the North Worcestershire Community Safety Partnership marked ASB Awareness Week from July 18 to July 24.

Bromsgrove District Council joined West Mercia Police and other agencies of the partnership to speak to the public at an event in the town centre, while a campaign raising the profile of how ASB is tackled in communities ran across social media.

Sue Hanley, chair of the North Worcestershire Community Safety Partnership, said: “People deserve to feel safe where they live and that’s why ASB is a priority at both national and local levels.

“This week was about highlighting that and drawing attention to the ways communities can report ASB - and what to expect because of those reports.

“Improving community safety is a statutory duty for the partners.

“That’s why partnership members work on it all year round including when it comes to ASB on responding to reports and preventing it in the first place, through improvements to the built environment, work with the licensed trade sector, and work with young people on local engagement and diversionary activities - amongst many other things.

“We want people to understand they can report ASB to members of our partnership easily and in confidence.”
