What is a Criminal Behaviour Order?
The Criminal Behaviour Order (CBO) is available on conviction for any criminal offence in any criminal court. The order is aimed at the most serious and persistent offenders where their behaviour has culminated in them being before a criminal court. The Crown Prosecution Service, and in some cases the Local Authority , may apply for the order after the offender has been convicted of a criminal offence. The CBO hearing will occur after or at the same time as the sentencing for the criminal conviction.
