Poole is in the Dorset Criminal Justice System (CJS) area, and 2009 is the latest year for which figures on antisocial behaviour orders (ASBOs) are available. In that year, 16 ASBOs were issued in the Dorset CJS area and 10 ASBOs issued in Dorset were proved in court to have been breached for the first time.

An ASBO can be issued in one CJS area and breached in another. ASBOs may also be breached more than once, and in more than one year. As a result, while the latter figure represents instances when an ASBO was breached for the first time in 2009, some of these may be breaches of ASBOs issued in previous years.
