Answer for ASBOs

Answered By:

Further to my answer to your previous question 280/2007, TfL's Transport Policing and Enforcement Directorate are currently assessing a number of cases for an application to be made and collecting evidence in connection with these cases. When TfL requested this power be made available to them, it was demonstrated that existing processes for resolving crime and disorder issues would ensure that the power would only be invoked where the only measure likely to be effective was an ASBO, or that existing partnership arrangements with the police were not suitable.
