This has been an exploratory study of Anti-Social Behaviour Orders (ASBOs) in the United Kingdom based on a selective sample of offenders, agencies, victims and residents. It became evident in the course of the research that these different groups tended to employ different criteria of ‘success’ in relation to the use of ASBOs. Assessments of success tended to be made on a number of dimensions: bringing relief to certain neighbourhoods and groups; reducing the level and impact of anti-social behaviour (ASB); changing attitudes and motivation of offenders; level of breaches and their enforcement; reduction of different forms of ASB in the area.
