We'll make sure that we do everything that we can to keep both our colleagues and people living in our communities safe. We will take action against those who make people in our communities feel less safe, and we will not tolerate RBH team members or local residents being threatened or abused.
Earlier this month, our team attended court to obtain an injunction against a resident in Middleton who repeatedly threatened and abused RBH team members who were simply carrying out their daily work. This injunction will help to protect both RBH employees and the local community by preventing the resident from continuing with his threatening and abusive behaviour. As the injunction imposes a power of arrest, any repeat behaviour could leave the resident facing prison.
More information about how we tackle anti-social behaviour in our communities can be found at www.rbh.org.uk/asb. You can report anti-social behaviour to us using this link, but remember, if you or someone else is in immediate danger, always dial 999. We work closely with Rochdale Borough Council, Greater Manchester Police, and other agencies to keep all of our neighbourhoods safe.
We are very grateful to our team members who helped us to obtain this injunction, and to our colleagues who were prepared to give statements to the court to make sure that we obtained this positive result.
