Separate figures reveal which types of anti-social behaviour are most common across the Avon and Somerset Police force area.

In the year to March 2022, the vast majority of incidents (87%) logged by the force were described as ‘nuisance’, that is, causing annoyance to the general community.

‘Personal’ anti-social behaviour incidents - those targeted at specific people - accounted for 9% of incidents, while environmental incidents - those where people have an impact on their surroundings - made up the remainder.
