Witness Information

Your evidence can help anyone who has suffered antisocial behaviour or harassment, or has seen or heard it happening.

As part of our work to tackle antisocial behaviour and harassment, we need your help. For more detailed information on how we deal with antisocial behaviour or harassment, please refer to our Antisocial Behaviour information and Harassment page.

We need evidence to prove that someone is, or has been, guilty of antisocial behaviour or harassment.

This evidence might be provided by a number of people and might include Neighbours, Police, Professional Witnesses and Housing Staff.

Most often the important evidence is that recorded by those experiencing the nuisance or antisocial behaviour.

Diary Sheets

You will have been asked to record the antisocial behaviour or harassment by completing an Antisocial Behaviour Incident Log. The page includes details on how to complete the diary sheets.

Statements

When we are compiling a case for court, we will need you to provide a witness statement. Either a member of our staff or a solicitor employed on our behalf writes this down. You will be seen in person at a place of your choice. The witness statement will include the facts that you have recorded and the effect on your life. You will be asked to read your statement, or it can be read to you before you are expected to sign.

Victim Support

If you have been affected by crime, Victim Support can offer you the support you need to move forward. Their services are free, confidential and available to anyone in England and Wales. It doesn't matter whether the crime has been reported, or how long ago it happened. They can be contacted via a free helpline 0808 168 9111 or via the Victim Support website.
