What is a Public Order offence?

Police often pursue charges for public order offences when they do not have sufficient evidence to prove a more specific crime or offence. A surprisingly large number of crimes are categorised as ‘public order offences’. They range from very serious crimes such as Violent Disorder and Affray to much less serious offences like being Drunk and Disorderly or Failure to Disperse.

If you suspect you are being investigated for a public order offence, or have formally been accused of these or any other crimes or offences, we urge you to contact Ashmans Solicitors straight away. We are experts in criminal defence, and would be happy to discuss your case, provide vital legal advice, and to represent you in court appearance, interviews and all stages of your case.

Common Public Order Offences include:

Riot (Section 1 Public Order Act 1986)
Violent Disorder (Section 2 Public Order Act 1986)
Affray (Section 3 Public Order Act 1986)
Intentional Harassment, Alarm or Distress (Section 4A Public Order Act 1986)
Threatening, Abusive or Insulting Behaviour (Section 5 Public Order Act 1986)
