Anti-social behaviour means different things to different people but to Fife Council being anti-social is behaving in a way which causes, or is likely to cause, alarm and distress to others.
This can include:
- Persistent excessive noise
- Physical assault
- Verbal abuse
- Racial harassment
- Selling drugs
Anti-Social Behaviour is not necessarily a crime but can be closely associated with criminal activities. It covers any behaviour which adversely affects anyone's quality of life or is likely to cause alarm or distress.
Anyone can be a victim of Anti-Social Behaviour and the degree to which they are affected can vary according to an individual's perception.
Anti-Social Behaviour can result in poor quality of life for residents. It makes people feel neglected and powerless and, if it's not addressed, it can destroy the spirit and pride of communities.
Don’t let your behaviour affect others. Remember:
- You are responsible for not only your own behaviour but for your family and visitors to your home. This covers the communal areas and the neighbourhood around your house.
- You are also responsible for making sure your family and visitors do not harass or discriminate against other people on the grounds of age, sex, sexuality, colour, ethnic or national origin, disability, religion, belief, appearance or marital status.
- Behaving in a violent or threatening manner will not be tolerated, and this applies not only to you but also to your family and visitors.
We can take legal action if problems persist.
