Police will be carrying out targeted patrols in the Rosary Road area of Norwich tonight and over the weekend to address residents' concerns.
It comes following a number of complaints received within the last 24-hours concerning incidents of anti-social behaviour and prostitution.
Anyone committing anti-social behaviour will be issued with a direction to leave notice, which prevents them from returning to a specified area for 48-hours.
In a bid to address concerns, dispersal authority has been granted for the Thorpe Hamlet area, covering Rosary Road, which gives police officers powers to issue direction to leave notices to anyone acting in an anti-social manner.
Sergeant Mark Shepherd said: 'This dispersal authority will run until Sunday evening and allows officers to issue direction to leave notices immediately without getting authority from a supervising officer.
You may also want to watch:
'This means we can deal with incidents promptly and effectively and anyone refusing to leave, or anyone who breaches the order, will be arrested.
'I hope this action provides further reassurance to residents living in the Rosary Road area that we are responding to concerns about anti-social behaviour within the community.'
