Report antisocial behaviour

In some circumstances we have the powers to deal with antisocial behaviour alone. However, in other cases we may need the support of other organisations to resolve the complaint.

To report an incident of antisocial behaviour, first contact the PSNI on 101.

Antisocial behaviour officers

If you encounter antisocial behaviour in your area, you can contact our antisocial behaviour officers.

We have four antisocial behaviour officers. They are:

  • Brad McCauley (East Belfast) - 028 9032 0202 ext 6454
  • Keith Addy (South Belfast) – 028 9032 0202 ext 3298

During normal office hours you can contact them on 028 9027 0469 or email

Neighbourhood officers

We have eight neighbourhood officers who target areas with high levels of antisocial behaviour.

They work Monday to Thursday (2pm to 10pm) and Friday and Saturday (4.30pm to midnight)

Their role is to:

  • provide a visible presence
  • offer guidance, support and advice on community safety issues
  • challenge low-level antisocial behaviour
  • enforce laws relating to on-street drinking and environmental crime
  • help to reduce crime and fear of crime.

Antisocial behaviour in parks

If you see any antisocial behaviour in our parks,  you can report it by phoning 028 9050 0515.

Please note this number is only manned during office hours, but you can leave a message outside these hours.

Re-deployable CCTV pilot

We're piloting the use of re-deployable CCTV cameras along Connswater Community Greenway.

Park wardens

Our park wardens tackle antisocial behaviour (ASB) in our parks. They patrol the parks at peak times to deal with issues like littering, dog fouling and drinking.

They also work alongside dog and litter wardens and have enforcement powers to issue fines.

Our wardens are easy to spot in their green uniforms. They travel between parks so they can respond to ASB across Belfast.

For more information on our park wardens, email or call us on 028 9091 8767.
