The Government are working with local authorities to reduce alcohol-fuelled violence by sharing good practice. Designated Public Place Orders (DPPOs) have been part of this good practice. The benefits of a DPPO have been highlighted in publications such as "Lessons Learned from the summer 2004 Alcohol Misuse Enforcement Campaign". They continue to be highlighted both on the "Together Tackling Antisocial behaviour" website and on the DPPO website. To date around 170 authorities have adopted the power to introduce a DPPO, with around 360 orders published.
