Public Spaces Protection Orders [PSPO]

PSPOs are one of a number of powers introduced by the Anti-Social Behaviour, Crime and Policing Act 2014. They are designed to stop individuals or groups committing anti-social behaviour in a public space which is having or is likely to have a detrimental effect on the quality of life of people in the area. The behaviour must be unreasonable and persistent or continuing in nature.

A person found to be in breach of the PSPO will be liable to pay a Fixed Penalty Notice (FPN) of £100 or a maximum penalty of £1,000 (£500 for current alcohol related PSPO) on summary conviction.

Public Spaces Protection Order - alcohol

PSPOs have replaced the earlier Designated Public Place Orders (DPPOs) in Chiltern, which provide the Police with powers to stop people drinking and request surrender of their alcohol if they are causing or likely to cause anti-social behaviour (ASB).
