Individual support orders are currently available for people under the age of 18. This is in recognition of the particular problems young people face in understanding and changing their behaviour. For people aged 18 and over served with an antisocial behaviour order the court may make an Intervention Order if it considers the cause of the antisocial behaviour to be drug-related.
Antisocial behaviour order (ASBO) data are currently available to 31 December 2005. A table giving the number of ASBOs issued annually, as reported to the Home Office by the Court Service, by the local government authority area in which prohibitions have been imposed, can be found on the Crime Reduction website at www.crimereduction. gov.uk.
