This book summarises the findings of a study that explored Anti-Social Behaviour Orders (ASBOs) in the United Kingdom and the views and experiences of the three key parties involved — the agencies, the offenders and the victims. It looks at the implementation of ASBOs and their impact on the different types of offenders. It examines the role of the agencies involved in processing and issuing ASBOs; the impact on those given ASBOs, particularly in relation to their propensity to engage in anti-social and criminal behaviour; and the experience and concerns of victims, complainants and affected communities. The research was conducted in seven London boroughs, and one location in the Midlands. Twenty-nine interviews were conducted with practitioners, including police, anti-social behaviour officers, community safety officers, housing officers, Youth Offending Team members, probation officers and magistrates.

Keywords:   United Kingdom, Anti-Social Behaviour Orders, anti-social behaviour, boroughs, agencies, offenders, victims, communities, complainants, criminal behaviour
