Antisocial Behaviour Orders: Hertfordshire

Volume 497: debated on Tuesday 13 October 2009

To ask the Secretary of State for the Home Department how many anti-social behaviour orders in each category are in force in relation to residents in (a) Hemel Hempstead constituency, (b) Dacorum and (c) Hertfordshire. (289430)

The latest available published data on the number of antisocial behaviour orders (ASBOs) issued covers the period 1 April 1999 to 31 December 2007 and are not available below Criminal Justice System (CJS) area level.

The number of ASBOs issued at all courts in the Hertfordshire Criminal Justice System area on application and the number issued following conviction is 58 and 156 respectively, a total of 214.

ASBOs can be of a fixed duration (for a minimum of 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.
