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 (ASB), 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 who look after different areas of Belfast. They are:
Heather Horner (East Belfast) - 028 90 320202 Ext 6454
Mark Corbett (North Belfast) - 028 90 320202 Ext 3394
Keith Addy (South Belfast) – 028 90 320202 Ext 3676
Paul Cleary (West Belfast) – 028 90 320202 Ext 3298
During normal office hours you can also contact them on 028 9027 0469 or email firstname.lastname@example.org
We have eight neighbourhood officers who target areas with high levels of antisocial behaviour. They work Monday to Thursday (2pm – 10pm) and Friday and Saturday (4.30pm – 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.
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 the park warden pilot email email@example.com or call us on 028 9091 8767.
