(3)The first condition is that the court is satisfied, beyond reasonable doubt, that the offender has engaged in behaviour that caused or was likely to cause harassment, alarm or distress to any person.

(4)The second condition is that the court considers that making the order will help in preventing the offender from engaging in such behaviour.

(a)prohibits the offender from doing anything described in the order;

(b)requires the offender to do anything described in the order.

(b)an order discharging the offender conditionally.

(7)The court may make a criminal behaviour order against the offender only on the application of the prosecution.

(8)The prosecution must find out the views of the local youth offending team before applying for a criminal behaviour order to be made if the offender will be under the age of 18 when the application is made.

(a)any interference with the times, if any, at which the offender normally works or attends school or any other educational establishment;

(b)any conflict with the requirements of any other court order or injunction to which the offender may be subject.

(10)In this section “local youth offending team” means—
