Group or gang disorder

If the associated behaviour is of a criminal nature, you need to report it to the police immediately, and you must also let them know if you are concerned about your safety.

Group disorder is activity like criminal damage, or threatening behaviour, caused by a group.

A group or gang can be a group of friends who hang around together, but some groups or gangs are involved in crime. Some groups or gangs are violent and might fight other gangs, or carry weapons. If you think that a young person is being forced to join a gang you should tell someone about it.

If the behaviour has been ongoing, please complete diary sheets [docx] 60KB with dates and times of incidents, as we can use these to help decide what to do.
