A crackdown on antisocial behaviour and street drinking in Brent was rolled out on Friday (October 20).
Brent Council introduced new powers to tackle antisocial behaviour throughout the borough following a unanimous vote on the matter in September.
A Public Space Protection Order (PSPO) has been rolled out across the whole of Brent following a successful trial of the scheme in six street-drinking "hotspots."
Breaching a PSPO is a criminal offence and people caught behaving antisocially or drinking in Brent's streets could be made to pay a fine of up to £1000.
Cllr Tom Miller, Brent Council's cabinet member for stronger communities, said: "I am confident we can create a borough that residents feel safe and protected in, and the introduction of this borough-wide PSPO will boost our efforts to get rid of street drinking and anti-social behaviour in Brent, whilst making sure that those who need help for substance abuse are given the support they need."
He added: "These new powers combine with the recent work we have been doing in improving our CCTV and getting more police on our streets, and underlines our commitment to make Brent a safer place for everyone."
