MK And ASBOs

by msecadm4921

Milton Keynes Magistrates Court served Interim Anti-Social Behaviour Orders on two teenage youths resident in Bradwell Common in July.

The court heard how the boys had continually spat, threatened and been verbally abusive to residents, and thrown bricks. They have also bullied other children. All of this has been over a number of years, the court was told.

At the instigation of the Community Safety Partnership Anti Social Behaviour Team, an order was sought after the authorities were inundated with complaints from neighbours. The orders effectively ban the brothers from continuing the kind of behaviour that was causing so much distress to other people in the community. The boys will have to wait until a two-day hearing in October to see if magistrates extend the orders to full ASBOs.

PC Dave Goodwin (ASBO Co-ordinator for MK) said: “Hopefully now the quality of life for these people will improve. We hope the boys will take this opportunity to address their behaviour and respect others.”

He said that, unlike other areas, the MK council and police were targeting individuals carefully in a bid not to devalue the orders. 66 were issued in 1 day in Leeds earlier this year, yet here there have been six full ASBOs and five interim ones since the legislation had been introduced.
