A TEENAGE drug dealer from Shepherd's Bush has been handed an ASBO and banned from entering the borough for two years.
The youth, who can not be named for legal reasons, is also forbidden from associating with a group of 11 criminals.
He is now one of 24 youths on ASBOs in Hammersmith and Fulham and the police continue to target anti-social behaviour, protection of vulnerable people and dealing with drug and violent crime.
A pair of 16-year-old's have also been slapped with ASBOs after police say they were 'causing havoc' in Shepherd's Bush and Hammersmith Broadway areas last year and have been banned from entering the area and having a dog in their possession.
Sergeant Gerald Hyder from the ASB Focus Desk based at Hammersmith Police Station, said: "I sometimes think ASBOs can be beneficial to some youngsters as it gives them a way out if they are looking for an excuse to disassociate themselves from groups.
"ASBOs can be very effective if targeting anti-social behaviour and crime and, in particular, if the restrictions are well thought out and breaches firmly dealt with."
Borough police have also cracked down on offenders breaking their ASBOs in 2010.
Aggressive street drinker Marion Alexander was jailed for 14 weeks in January and or 16 weeks this month for breaching her order.
Prolific thief Jason Hammerton was handed a three month suspended sentence last month for breaching his order and street drinker Janusz Howzon jailed for 16 weeks in March.
