This research explores whether better use could be made of these new powers in order to have a positive and constructive impact on alcohol-related crime and anti-social behaviour. It looks at the experiences of people involved in applying and delivering these orders, and seeks to capture both their practical experiences and their views on what their potential strengths might be. It is not an evaluation of the orders, nor does it present a comprehensive analysis of the role of ‘compelled treatment’ in reducing anti-social behaviour (there is a brief discussion of this debate in Appendix 1). Rather, it provides insights into how the powers are currently being applied, what challenges are being faced by those seeking to apply them, and what good practice examples are available.

Critically, the focus of this report is the role of these powers in reducing alcohol-related crime and disorder. We do not present definitive answers here, but rather set out what the key challenges are and what immediate steps might be taken to make the best, most effective, use of these powers in the future.
