Antisocial behaviour orders (ASBOs) became available from 1 April 1999. Data on the number issued currently covers the period to the end of 2007. These data are not available below Criminal Justice System (CJS) area level.
Data on the number of ASBOs issued held by the Office for Criminal Justice Reform do not include information detailing the specific nature of the antisocial behaviour which resulted in the court issuing the ASBO. This could only be determined by examining individual court files which could be achieved only at disproportionate cost.
