What is anti-social behaviour?
We define anti-social behaviour as when someone acts in a way that causes (or is likely to cause) harassment, alarm or distress to people from other households.
Harassment is defined as a range of behaviours, such as threats, verbal abuse, written abuse (e.g. on social media), damage to property, violence, stalking and behaviour causing or intended to cause alarm or distress.

If you’re thinking of using a CCTV system, you need to make sure you respect other people’s privacy.
If your system captures images of people outside the boundary of your home, then the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) and the Data Protection Act 2018 (DPA18) will apply to you. This includes cameras fitted to doorbells.
Use our CCTV systems guide to make sure that your system complies with these laws.
