INCIDENT DIARY

“Everyone has the right to enjoy life in their own way as

long as they don’t upset people living near them

Many neighbour problems can be sorted out by talking calmly with the other person. But action can be

taken quickly to assist you if this approach fails or if someone’s behaviour is very anti-social.

 

We can only help you if we know in detail what is going on. You can make this possible by keeping a diary of

everything that happens. Make sure you keep to these five simple rules:

 

1. This diary is your own personal record of what you see and hear. You should not write down something

that anyone else (including your wife, husband or partner) has witnessed. They should keep their own

diary - or you can give them one of the tear-off sheets at the back of this diary (called Witness Reports).

2. You must fill in the diary sheet as soon as possible while the incident is still fresh in your mind. If you do it

right away you’ll remember more details.

3. Fill in one sheet for each separate incident. If there is a second incident on the same day or night, start a

new sheet. Put your name and signature and the date at the bottom of each sheet.

4. Write down everything you see and hear in as much detail as possible. A general summary isn’t as useful

as a word-for-word account. So you should include any swear words. You’ll see in the example sheet

(which shows you how to fill in the diary) that we have written swear words down in full. This is much

more effective than “he used abusive language”. Writing such words can be upsetting, but it gives a

better understanding of what happened and how it has affected you.

5. Try to identify people involved on each occasion. If you don’t know the full name of the people you are

making a report about, but you know their nickname, or they have any identifying characteristics (clothing,

hairstyle, etc) or you have any other way of identifying them, please put this down.

 

Other Evidence

If you can, it’s a good idea to collect other evidence to back up the diary. Photographs can help in some

cases - such as when you are being bothered by car repairs, overgrown gardens, grafitti and so on. Put the

time and date the photo was taken on the back and sign it. You could make a tape-recording if the problem

is very loud music or shouting. Speak to a housing officer if you need help and advice.

 

Information Sharing

Please tick your answer to the following questions.

Do you consent to the information you have provided being shared with partner agencies/authorities who

may have an interest in pursuing a case against a person/s involved?

Yes N o

Do you consent to this information being used in Court proceedings?

Yes N o

Do you wish your details to be withheld completely?

Yes N o

25 Chipstead Walk outside

Mark Glover, 25 Chipstead Walk

I heard a bang and shouting outside. I looked out of my kitchen window and saw Mark Glover, who lives at number

25 banging and kicking at his front door. He was shouting to the person inside to open the door. Then at one point

he shouted very loudly “open the door or you’re fucking dead”. A woman inside kept screaming “go away you bastard”.

He picked up a brick and threw it at the hall window. The window smashed and he tried to get in. Kevin my son

called the police who arrived and took him Mark Glover away.

Mrs Mason from 10 Chipstead Walk and my son Kevin Smith (23 Chipstead)

My son phoned the police. PC Jones (number 6758) from Horsham Police station came and he wrote it all down.

The incident is typical of Mr Glover’s behaviour. There have been things like this every weekend for the last 7 or 8

weeks (see previous diaries). My children who are 6 and 8 are woken up regularly. They are getting very unsettled.
