What is the Community Trigger?
The Community Trigger is a process which allows members of the
community to ask the Community Safety Partnership to review their

behaviour. We will do this by talking about the problem, sharing

The Trigger should be used if you believe your
complaint has not been appropriately addressed or no action has
been taken. The Trigger should not be used to report general acts
of crime, including hate crime.
The Trigger does not replace the complaints procedures of

Local Government Ombudsman or Independent Police Complaints
The Community Trigger can be used if you (as
an individual) have complained to the council, police or a
registered housing provider (social landlord) about three separate
incidents in the last six months.
