Antisocial Investigations Team (ASIST)
ASIST is a specialised team of officers who investigate and resolve problems of antisocial behaviour and other community safety issues. Their job is varied and includes interviewing complainers, witnesses, and those people engaging antisocial behaviour, issuing verbal and written warnings, working with other agencies and if necessary to submit cases to Legal Services.
ASIST works hard to persuade people to change their behaviour, offers support for those who need it, targets solutions, not legal measures, and if necessary pursues legal measures.
All Services within Inverclyde Council work with a number of partners to support people who are experiencing antisocial behaviour - to speak to the team contact the Problem Solving Unit on the 0800 number provided.
