EXPLANATORY NOTE

EXPLANATORY NOTE (This note is not part of the Rules)

These Rules provide a form for the order which can be made under section 1C of the Crime and Disorder Act 1998 on conviction in criminal proceedings for an offence committed after the commencement of section 64 of the Police Reform Act 2002. The order may be made if the court considers that the offender has acted since 1st April 1999 in an anti-social manner and that the order is necessary to protect people from further anti-social acts by him. The court can make the order on its own initiative as well as on the application by a relevant authority. An order can only be made in addition to the sentence or a conditional discharge for the offence of which the person has been convicted. The order is a preventative measure and is for the protection of others; it is not a penalty for the offence. If the offender is given a custodial sentence, the order can be suspended until his release. The order must be for a minimum of two years, or until further order. Application can be made for variation, but not for discharge, of the order within those two years. Breach of an order is a criminal offence.
