The number of males and females who received an immediate custodial sentence for breach of an antisocial behaviour order (ASBO) in each police force area in England and Wales in 2011 (latest currently available) can be viewed in the table.
Data on breaches of ASBOs held centrally on the Ministry of Justice Court Proceedings Database do not include information about all the circumstances behind each case other than those which may be identified from a statute. Therefore, from these data, it is not possible to separately identify cases where an offence of breach of an ASBO occurred in which the offender was either a perpetrator or victim of domestic violence from those cases where they were not.
|Antisocial behaviour orders (ASBOs) proven in court to have been breached(1) where the breach resulted in a sentence of immediate custody, in each police force area(2) in England and Wales in 2011(3)|
|ASBOs breached resulting in custody|
|Police force area||Males||Females|
|Avon and Somerset||16||1|
|Devon and Cornwall||13||1|
|Hampshire and Isle of Wight||18||3|
|England and Wales||638||74|
|(1) In this table ASB0 breaches are counted on the occasion on which the severest penalty for breach of an ASBO was received. (2) ASBOs may be issued in one area and breached in another ASBOs breached are counted baaed on the police force area in which the court at which the breach was proven is located; this may be different to the area in which the court that issued the ASBO is located (3) Many of these breached ASBOs will have been issued in years prior to 2011. Note: ASBO breach data are compiled by matching records of ASBOs issued with ASBOs breached. The nature of this matching process means that previously published ASBO breach data are subject to minor revision. Every effort is made lo ensure that the figures presented are accurate and complete. However, it is important to note that these data have been extracted from large administrative data systems generated by the courts and police forces. As a consequence, care should be taken to ensure data collection processes and their inevitable limitations are taken into account when those data are used.
