New powers to move on groups committing anti-social behaviour have been granted to police in Derbyshire.
The order was applied for after a rise in reports of problems in Middlecroft, Inkersall and Hollingwood.
It allows police and community support officers to break up groups they think could cause trouble and make them leave the area for 24 hours.
Anyone breaching the dispersal order, which lasts for six months, faces up to three months in jail or a £2,500 fine.
Youths under the age of 16 can be taken home by officers as part of the order.
Pc Kara Butler said: "This type of legislation allows us to actively target and remove potential troublemakers from the area quickly and effectively.
"We hope this goes a long way to showing the public that their views and concerns are taken very seriously and that anti-social behaviour of any kind will not be tolerated under any circumstances."
