NALC Legal Topic Notes

[69] ANTI SOCIAL BEHAVIOUR ORDERS (ASBOS) AND HARASSMENT

Anti-Social Behaviour Orders (ASBOs) are made pursuant to the Crime and Disorder Act 1998 as amended by the Police Reform Act 2002 and the Anti Social Behaviour Act 2003. Local councils do not currently have the power to apply for ASBOs. However NALC appreciates that anti-social behaviour is an important issue for local councils and this Note is intended to give them an overview of the provisions so that appropriate representations can be made to those who do have the power to apply for them.
