North Wales Police plan to take the controversial step of naming and shaming people convicted of anti-social behaviour.
Police campaign is aimed at anti-social behaviour
They are starting with naming a man banned from his village for terrorising its residents.
Police will issue leaflets with photos and personal details of people who are made the subject of anti-social behaviour orders (ASBOs).
The first leaflet features details of 43-year-old Richard Morris Lloyd, of Dwygyfylchi, near Conwy.
He is currently serving a three-month prison sentence imposed by Prestatyn magistrates after breaching his order by returning to his home village.
He was named court as " the neighbour from hell".
The pamphlets form part of the force's Dyna Ddigon campaign and are produced in conjunction with Conwy County Council.
They will contain a telephone number for people to call if they see an individual in an area where they are not supposed to be.
North Wales Police said they would determine each case on merit but see the leaflets as a valuable deterrent.
Elsewhere, Essex Police ran into difficulties after a burglar successfully stopped their plans for a "name and shame" poster campaign.
Gary Ellis, a 28-year-old drug addict, won a partial victory when the Lord Chief Justice Lord Woolf ordered further research into the scheme's potential effect on the shamed criminal's family.
Lord Woolf - ordered further research into effect on criminal's family
Backed by legal aid, Ellis, who is serving three-and-a-half years in jail, had objected to his police "mug shot" and details of his convictions being plastered over 40 prominent sites in Brentwood, Essex.
Essex Police claimed the posters might act as a deterrent to those planning to commit crime but
Ellis claimed his family would be stigmatised.
He claimed that the campaign could breach his right to a private family life under Article 8 of the European Convention on Human Rights.
Essex Police say they have decided not to continue with the Gary Ellis poster campaign as a result, but say they are still looking at campaigns involving other offenders.
