Antisocial behaviour hotline at Sandwell Budd

See how the new helpline was the catalyst for “getting things done” across issues affecting the police, council and housing agency. Most complaints stem from a few hotspots or issues and 31 neighbourhood committees are each tasked with generating an improvement action every month. Crime in Sandwell has reduced by 25% in 2 years. ASBOs have greatly reduced and are much lower than in neighbouring areas.
