POLICE have been on foot patrol in Hailsham – and here’s why:

“We are in #Hailsham town centre on foot patrol throughout the day following reports of recent anti-social behaviour in the area.

Antisocial behaviour is defined as ‘behaviour by a person which causes, or is likely to cause, harassment, alarm or distress to persons not of the same household as the person’

.But what does this mean, and what constitutes antisocial behaviour?

There are three main categories for antisocial behaviour, depending on how many people are affected:

Personal antisocial behaviour is when a person targets a specific individual or group.

Nuisance antisocial behaviour is when a person causes trouble, annoyance or suffering to a community.

Environmental antisocial behaviour is when a person’s actions affect the wider environment, such as public spaces or buildings.
