Asbos make their big screen debut

West Surrey police have been screening images of people issued
with antisocial behaviour orders in Guildford town centre in the
first initiative of its kind.

Shoppers were treated to a special “show” on a designated “wall
of shame”, featuring two men who had been imprisoned for breaching
Asbos as part of the locally organised antisocial behaviour

Meanwhile, a new pressure group is calling for the government to
look at the “negative” impact of Asbos in the run-up to the general
election. A promise to achieve safer communities was one of Tony
Blair’s six pledges unveiled at Labour’s conference in Gateshead
last week.

Asbo Concern will be launched next month with meetings in
Manchester and London.
