Call to 'name and shame' on Asbos

PUBLISHED March 1, 2005

Police and local authorities are being urged to publicise the names of adults and children as young as 10 who get anti-social behaviour orders (Asbos).

"Naming and shaming" should be "the norm and not the exception", new guidance from the Home Office will say.
The human rights of those given Asbos must be considered, it will stress.
But identifying individuals subject to Asbos is "essential" for communities to tackle anti-social behaviour, the Home Office will argue.
