About Community Response

Community Response provides a highly visible frontline service which works with communities across North Somerset with a focus on preventing and resolving anti-social behaviour which is impacting on local residents and businesses.

We have two uniformed Community Response Officers who each have their own area in North Somerset. They spend most of their time out and about in their areas, acting as the ‘eyes and ears’ in local communities by making themselves known to local residents and businesses, talking to them about local issues.

Our Community Response Officers receive weekly core taskings from our Community Safety Team and CCTV Control Room, in addition to responding to anti-social behaviour reports received from the public.

Community Response work by resolving issues themselves or with partners including Avon & Somerset Police and Housing associations. This may include the use of their range of anti-social behaviour tools and powers including their Community Safety Accreditation Scheme Powers.
