THE INDEPENDENT: Metropolitan Police apply for court order to stop gang members making drill music, in unprecedented move

Press/Media: Expert comment

Description

Jo Deakin, a senior lecturer in criminology at the University of Manchester, said she had never heard of a CBO being used to to restrict offenders from making a particular genre of music, although she noted ASBOs – the predecessor to CBOs - “notoriously imposed bizarre restrictions that were sometimes impossible to stick to.”

She added young offenders’ route to violent crime was “extremely complex often involving significant marginalisation and trauma, so any CBO would need to look at the bigger picture”.
