The Community Trigger

The Eastbourne Community Safety Partnership, which includes the police, the council and registered housing providers, works together to tackle anti-social behaviour and hate incidents.

If you believe that action has not been taken to tackle anti-social behaviour or hate incidents you have reported, you can use the Community Trigger process to ask agencies to review their response.

At What Stage Can I Use The Community Trigger?

You can use the Community Trigger if you have reported three separate incidents within the past six months to the police, the council or your housing provider. You can also activate the Community Trigger on behalf of someone else if you have their written consent.

Use the Community Trigger Now

You will need to fill out a form detailing the case: 

You can also download a Word version below which you can return by email, or the PDF version which you can complete by hand and return by post.

  • Community Trigger Request Form [pdf / 91KB] Download the Community Trigger Request Form in PDF format. Print, complete and return by post to Eastbourne Community Safety Partnership, 1 Grove Road, Eastbourne, BN21 4TW

If you prefer, you can request a paper version of the form to be sent you by calling 01323 410000.

What Happens After I Complete the Form?

The Community Trigger is designed to ensure that there is a review where cases have been reported and no action has been taken. It is not a complaints procedure.

If your case meets these criteria you will be notified within three working days. Your case will be reviewed and recommendations may be made as to how the case can progress. This will be reported to you within ten working days.
