Antisocial Response Team

Based in our Central Monitoring Unit, North Lanarkshire Council's antisocial response team handle complaints around the clock and respond to incidents as they happen.

Everyone has a different idea about what antisocial behaviour means. The term 'antisocial behaviour' covers any kind of nuisance, unreasonable behaviour or harassment. It can also include more serious criminal behaviour or activity.

The Anti-Social Behaviour Etc (Scotland) Act 2004 provides the legal definition of antisocial behaviour as:-

"A person engages in antisocial behaviour if they act in a manner that causes or is likely to cause alarm and distress or pursues a course of conduct which causes or is likely to cause alarm and distress to at least one person who is not of the same household. (Course of conduct must involve conduct on at least two occasions)."
