Guidance for establishing Designated Public Place Orders
On 1 September 2001, sections 12–16 of the Criminal Justice and Police Act 2001 came into force allowing local authorities to establish Designated Public Place Orders where restrictions on public drinking apply. This booklet explains how they can be established.
This guide explains the powers given to local authorities in England and Wales to introduce Designated Public Place Orders (DPPOs). The provisions are contained in section 13 of the Criminal Justice and Police Act 2001 and section 26 of the Violent Crime Reduction Act 2006.
The purpose of this guide is to help you get the best out of DPPOs. If your local area has found its own effective system for using this power, then there is no need to consider making changes. Our aim is to ensure good practice from practitioners. The examples we give are merely suggestions that you may wish to try in your local area, particularly if DPPOs are new to you. We are not looking to replace existing local protocols.
