Help us prevent anti-social behaviour and neighbourhood nuisance in St Helens 

At this time of year, we sometimes see an increase in reports and concerns from St.Helens residents about certain nuisance behaviours;

3 Red Arrows

  • off-road vehicles: scramblers, quad bikes being ridden illegally on public land
  • people setting nuisance fires: in parks, grassland and other public areas
  • general neighbourhood nuisance: dog fouling, litter, graffiti, noise and;
  • anti-social behaviour: particularly in parks and other communal areas.

Sadly we are still receiving reports of these issues happening, despite the national social distancing measures  currently in place and the current COVID-19 situation. 

There are many different types of anti-social behaviour - so it is not always easy to know who to contact nor the best way to contact them.

Our guide includes information about what to look out for, useful things to note and record to assist the police and local agencies with their response, and who you should report each issue to. 

Support the emergency services. Stay alert.

There are many different types of anti-social behaviour - some environmental and some criminal, which are dealt with by different agencies; so it is not always easy to know who to contact, or the best way to contact them. To help the emergencies, it's more important than ever to report issues to the right agency, so that emergency resources are free to help with the national response to COVID-19. 

About the campaign

 #Ready2Report is a yearly campaign headed up by us here at Safer Communities (Safer St Helens). It's a joint effort in collaboration with agencies from the St.Helens Community Safety Partnership (CSP), including Merseyside Police, Merseyside Fire and Rescue Service, Registered Social Landlords and other agencies


Councillor Jeanie Bell, St Helens Council's Cabinet Member for Community Safety, said:

"These are difficult times, and every one of us will need to pull together as a community if we are to make it through. It's saddening to see that while so many people across St Helens are uniting, there are still those few ignoring the government's national guidance, causing trouble and doing harm to the wonderful place we live and work in.

"Police and all community safety partners are still hard at work, so please, if you see anti-social behaviour or breaches of the current coronavirus lockdown measures, report it and we'll sort it."
