Police Reform Act 2002

Section 66: Consultation requirements

353.This section inserts new section 1E into the Crime and Disorder Act 1998. It effectively replaces subsection (2) of section 1 of the 1998 Act, which is deleted by section 61(5) of this Act. A council of a local government area must consult the chief officer of police with jurisdiction in that area before applying for an ASBO, while a chief officer of police must consult the council of the local government area in which the person in relation to whom the order is to be made lives or appears to live. In addition, this section requires the British Transport Police and registered social landlords to consult the council of the local government area in which the person in relation to whom the application is to be made lives or appears to live, and the chief officer of police with jurisdiction in that area. The consultation requirements also apply to an application to a county court under new section 1B. (The obligation to consult authorities in adjoining local government areas has been removed by the new subsection (6) in section 1, inserted by section 61(7) of this Act).
