Statistics are not currently collated centrally on the ethnicity of people given an ASBO. The decision to grant an ASBO as a means of protecting a community or individuals from antisocial behaviour rests with the courts, and the agencies that apply for such orders are themselves public bodies that are thus subject to the race equality duty.
