This chapter summarises the findings of the research which explored the operation, views and experiences of the relevant agencies in selecting and processing cases of Anti-Social Behaviour Orders (ASBOs) in the United Kingdom. It analyses both the conceptual and practical issues that have arisen in different locations and in different agencies. The findings are discussed under the following headings: variations in attitudes and experience in different boroughs; interagency partnership and cooperation; criteria for selecting and processing cases; the problem of definition; the shift from ASBOs to Anti-Social Behaviour Orders on Conviction; formulating the conditions for ASBOs; the provision of support and welfare services; the use of ASBOs in relation to Acceptable Behaviour Contracts and Parenting Orders; and breaches and enforcement.
