Threatening and intimidating behaviour
Intimidation or harassment is a personalised form of anti-social behaviour, specifically aimed at particular individuals.People experience repeated incidents and problems of intimidation and harassment day after day.
Violent behaviour is an offence and can carry very serious penalties.A restraining order may be made in addition to the conviction, or an injunction obtained.The PHA is the main criminal legislation dealing with the offence of harassment.Where action is taken in a county court in Scotland and Northern Ireland, an ASBO can be made against a party to the main proceedings or another adult whose conduct is material to the proceedings.
In England and Wales a Criminal Behaviour Order may be obtained where an offender has been convicted of an offence and has engaged, or is likely to engage, in conduct likely to cause harassment, distress or alarm to others and the order is likely to prevent this in the future.
