This chapter presents evidence of growth in the use of banishment and in the spatial extent of exclusion zones. It describes different sources of political pressure on the police and prosecutors to respond to the concerns about crime and disorder. It uses interviews and observations to explain why banishment is still considered as an attractive tool for police and correctional officers, as well as prosecutors. It shows how the expanding use of the new tools contribute to the growth and overcrowding of the criminal justice system, even during a period of decreasing crime rates.

Keywords:   exclusion zones, criminal justice system, political pressure, crime and disorder, police, prosecutors, correctional officers
