An anti-social behaviour order (ASBO) was a civil order made in the United Kingdom against a person who had been shown, on the balance of evidence, to have engaged in anti-social behaviour. The orders were introduced by Prime Minister Tony Blair in 1998. They were designed to address behavior like intimidation, drunkenness, and violence by individuals and families, using civil orders rather than criminal sanctions.
