Section 62: Power of Secretary of State to add relevant authorities
338.This section inserts a new section 1A into the Crime and Disorder Act 1998. It gives the Secretary of State the power by order to enable non-Home Office police forces to apply for ASBOs (i.e. be added to the list of relevant authorities) and thereby removes the need for future primary legislation to achieve this. An order under new section 1A is subject to the negative resolution procedure.
