To try and prevent further incident please  try to follow the below prevention advice -

  • Consider reviewing the general security of the property and follow the full domestic survey guide
  • Speak to neighbours, appraise them of the damage being caused and ask them to be vigilant and report any suspicious occurrence to the Police or ASB Team as appropriate.
  • Consider joining or forming a Neighbourhood Network. Offenders are less likely to cause damage in an area where people care.
  • If your property has been damaged repair it as quick as possible. Any existing damage is likely to attract more to be committed.
  • Keep a record of the details of all events you think are related to the damage including dates and times.
  • If possible and without putting yourself at risk, try to get photographic evidence of the incidents and damage caused.
  • If there is something attracting antisocial behaviour to your neighbourhood contact your Local Authority ASB team and tell them they can be contacted via 300300 or report online HERE.
  • If a supply of rocks, stones or empty bottles is being used to cause the damage, could they be moved out of harm’s way?
  • Improve the chances of any offender being seen, reduce hedges, increase lighting and if on private land consider CCTV & signage.
