Report ASB

If you are feeling at risk and have suffered physical, mental or emotional harm, whether this was a deliberately targeted act or not, you must seek help.

Make a report

Call 999 if you or someone else is in immediate danger, or if a crime is in progress. If not, you can contact the police on 101 or report online.

If you do not feel as though you are in immediate danger, you can make a report to us. We have a dedicated ASB Team who work in close partnership with the Neighbourhood Policing Teams and are co-located in Littlehampton and Bognor Regis police stations for part of the working week.

You can report to us by:

  • emailing asb@arun.gov.uk
  • calling the dedicated 24-hour answerphone service on 0808 141 2800 (free from UK landlines)

If we open a case, we will give you a dedicated caseworker to follow up on your complaint. With the information you provide we can take steps to tackle antisocial behaviour including:

What happens next

We aim to get back to you within one working day for serious complaints. For other complaints, we aim to get back to you within five working days.

When we contact you, we'll make an assessment about your report and we may refer you to another organisation or person who can help with your issue.
