YOBS who terrorise neighbourhoods will be named and shamed as police launch a three-month mission to stamp out anti-social behaviour.
Officers from Hammersmith and Fulham will publish pictures of adults given an antisocial behaviour order (Asbo) and crack down on drug dealers in a London-wide operation to make communities safer.
Police will build on work done by Safer Neighbourhoods Teams as part of Operation Safer Places, targeting offenders from persistent street drinkers to nuisance neighbours.
They have promised to execute at least two drug warrants and two multi-agency operations a month – removing abandoned cars, graffiti and drug paraphernalia.
Officers will visit schools and youth clubs to raise awareness of how loud music, begging, littering and prostitution impacts on lives.
Commander Mak Chishty, the Met’s chief for anti-social behaviour, said: “The Met recognises the impact anti-social behaviour can have on the lives of many people on a daily basis.
“It often leaves victims feeling helpless, desperate and with a seriously reduced quality of life, and disrupts neighbourhoods and communities. It will not be tolerated by the Met and we will take action against those who cause alarm or distress in their communities.”
