Attendance Centre Orders

This order can no longer be made by the court. It was abolished under the Criminal Justice and Immigration Act 2009.

An Attendance Centre Order sentences a young person to attend an Attendance Centre. Attendance Centres are normally run by the police. The regime typically involves discipline, physical training and social skills. The order can last up to 36 hours depending on the age of the offender and the seriousness of the offence.
