The Ministry of Justice publishes data on prosecutions for England and Wales by Police Force Area but does not hold data for parliamentary constituencies. Anti-social behaviour can span a wide range of offences, for which there is not a definitive list. The number of defendants prosecuted for breaching an Anti-Social Behaviour Order (ASBO) or a Criminal Behaviour Order (which replaced the ASBO in 2014) by police force area can be found in the Court outcomes by Police Force Area data tool found here:

When using the data tool, ensure ’02: Magistrates’ Court’ is selected in the Court Type filter for prosecutions.

  • Select ’66.7 Breach of a criminal behaviour order’ and ‘8.11 Breach of an Anti-Social Behaviour Order’ in the Offence filter.
  • To view the offences in the table, remove Police Force Area from the Rows area and replace it with Offence.
