Antisocial Behaviour Orders: Castle Point

Volume 495: debated on Tuesday 7 July 2009

To ask the Secretary of State for the Home Department (1) how many anti-social behaviour orders are in force in Castle Point; (282861)

(2) how many anti-social behaviour orders Castle Point Borough Council applied for in each of the last five years.

Data on the number of antisocial behaviour orders (ASBOs) issued on application are not available below Criminal Justice System (CJS) area level. The available published information showing the number of ASBOs issued on application at all county and magistrates courts in the Essex Criminal Justice System (CJS) area in each year for the period 2002 to 2006 can be viewed in the table.

ASBOs can be of a fixed duration (minimum two years) or made until further order. It is therefore not possible to determine from centrally collected data how many ASBOs are in force at a particular point in time.

Number of antisocial behaviour orders (ASBOs) issued at magistrates and county courts on application in the Essex Criminal Justice System (CJS) area as reported to the Home Office by the Court Service, 1 January 2002 to 31 December 2006

1. Previously issued data have been revised.

2. Every effort is made to ensure that the figures presented are accurate and complete. However, it is important to note that these data have been extracted from large administrative data systems generated by the courts. As a consequence, care should be taken to ensure data collection processes and their inevitable limitations are taken into account when those data are used.
