About community triggers 

A community trigger is available for those that think their complaint of anti-social behaviour has not been dealt with appropriately. If you have reported three separate incidents of anti-social behaviour, and you do not feel they have been dealt with, the community trigger gives you the ability to require a review of your case, where a locally defined threshold is met.

In Staffordshire, the single point of contact for the community trigger is Staffordshire Police.

Find out more about the community trigger process on Staffordshire Police's website.

Applying for a community trigger

If you wish to apply for a community trigger you can call Staffordshire Police on 101. Explain that you wish to apply for a community trigger and you will be put through to the control room and an operator will take the details of the complaint on a community trigger incident. You can also email Staffordshire Police to apply for a community trigger.
