The Anti-social Behaviour, Crime and Policing Act 2014 introduced two measures that give communities and victims an input into policies and approaches on tackling anti-social behaviour. They are the Community Trigger and the Community Remedy.

The Community Trigger, also known as the anti-social behaviour case review, gives victims of persistent anti-social behaviour the ability to demand a formal case review (where a locally defined threshold is met), in order to determine whether there is further action which can be taken. Any individual, community or business can make an application for a case review, and the relevant bodies must carry out a case review if the threshold is met.

The Community Remedy gives victims of low-level crime and anti-social behaviour a say in the punishment of perpetrators who receive an out of court punishment.
