A teenage trouble maker has been taken in to the station by police as part of a crackdown on anti-social behaviour.
Neighbourhood officers in the north of Newcastle have issued the warning after launching a large-scale response to concerns from residents in the city.
Incidents of young people acting in a disorderly manner had been reported in West Denton, Newbiggin Hall and Chapel House in recent weeks.
In one particular incident, a group of teenagers had stormed the Chapel House GP surgery and intimidated staff and patients.
Neighbourhood officers were deployed across the area and one teenage trouble-maker was brought into the police station to be spoken to about his behaviour.
Several more of those suspected to be involved in anti-social behaviour have also had officers visit their home to receive a stern warning in front of their parents.
Officers also visited the ‘D Roads’ in West Denton this week where parents were warned they face eviction if the bad behaviour continues.
Neighbourhood Inspector Harninder Bola recently joined the neighbourhood team and said he is committed to making residents feel safe again.
He said: "We had a number of calls about teenagers behaving in a disorderly manner and intimidating members of the public in these areas.
"Some of the behaviour was completely unacceptable and some residents did not feel safe leaving their homes.
"We are not afraid to respond robustly to this type of behaviour and we will take action against any child who is identified as being involved.
“A large number of children have been given stern warnings by out officers and we have worked with partner agencies to take action against parents who fail to work with police.
"However, I want to be clear that the majority of children are very well behaved and are a real credit to their community.
"It is only a small minority who do cross that line but some well-behaved kids are getting drawn in to petty disorder.
"I want to ask parents to work with us. Make sure you know what your children are doing and if you hear about unacceptable behaviour then please give us a call.
“If you report a concern then we will do everything in our power to respond and provide you with a positive update.”
Dispersal notices have been put in place by the neighbourhood team at weekends that gives officers the power to move on large groups of children.
High visibility patrols will continue as part of Operation McPhee - a collaborative approach to anti-social behaviour with Newcastle City Council.
Police and Crime Commissioner Kim McGuinness and Newcastle North MP Catherine McKinnell have also visited West Denton to see how police are tackling the disorder.
She said: “It’s my job to ensure Northumbria Police are addressing the needs of the local community and I am committed to ensuring that happens.
“This initiative is a great example of targeted work happening in Newcastle North between myself, the Member of Parliament, Catherine McKinnell, local councillors, the police, the council and Your Homes Newcastle.
“Together we are tackling the issues that have been raised in the area. It’s vital we build on this.
“Any residents with concerns must get in touch with the police – the more information the better as it will allow officers to deal with issues effectively.”
Anyone who wants to report anti-social behaviour can do so by calling police on 101 or reporting it online at the Northumbria Police website.
