We collect data on the use of the tools and powers available to practitioners to tackle antisocial behaviour. Data on the number of antisocial behaviour orders (ASBOs) made and breached are provided by the courts to the Home Office. The most recent data were published on 8 May 2008. We also receive data on the use of other tools and powers, such as antisocial behaviour contracts, through the Crime and Disorder Reduction Partnership (CDRP) survey.

We also keep in touch with frontline practitioners through policy development discussion groups, and through regular training events. This helps ensure that practitioners are fully up to speed with the latest practice in using the wide range of ASB tools and powers available to them. This close relationship also means that we can draw upon front line experience and expertise in developing policy.
