Answered By: 
The Mayor

The Metropolitan Police Service record the number of ASB calls received rather than the number of incidents as a measure of the volume of ASB taking place within London.

These figures are published publicly at both a borough and ward level by MOPAC within the Crime dashboard that can be accessed via the following link:

https://www.london.gov.uk/what-we-do/mayors-office-policing-and-crime-mopac/data-and-statistics/crime-dashboard

This dashboard is updated monthly with data spanning January 2014 to the most recent month. ASB is a mandatory priority for all London boroughs as set out within the Mayor's Police and Crime Plan and the MOPAC performance framework.

Current performance within East London shows a clear downward trend in the number of calls received since the summer of 2017.
