Community trigger

Community triggers are special cases where repeated anti-social behaviour occurs.

If you have reported 3 separate incidents in the past 6 months to the council, police or social landlord and would like for an impartial review of your case, you can request a community trigger.

A community trigger is an impartial review of a case. A panel will review the case and determine if appropriate action is being taken to resolve anti-social behaviour. The panel can make recommendations to the responsible organisation to improve the situation. It is not a complaints process. If you are not satisfied with the outcome of a case, contact the organisation and ask for their complaints process.​

More information about the reporting process, along with action timescales, can be found in the Community Trigger Process Map document in the expandable Documents section on this page.

To report a Community Trigger contact us with your name and contact details:

By phone: to 0113 378 9669 (8am to 4pm)
By post: Community Trigger, Community Safety 3rd Floor, Great George Street, Leeds, LS2 8BA 

You can also download a reporting form from the expandable Documents section on this page.

You will need to provide us with details of 3 separate incidents that you have reported, or the names of 5 other residents who have reported the same incident. We will review the incident details and aim to respond to you within 2 working days.
