Inspector Gareth Thomas said:
"Anti-social behaviour can have a negative impact on the quality of life of our communities and it won’t be tolerated in Gwent.
“If you have any concerns about anti-social behaviour, and see us on our patrols, please do stop to talk to us.
"Alternatively, you can report your concerns by calling 101, or by sending us a direct message via Facebook or Twitter.”
Dispersal orders give officers extra powers to direct groups to leave an area if they are involved in ASB or disorder, if members of the public are being harassed, alarmed or distressed or if officers think their behaviour may lead to ASB.
If they return to that area after being moved on, they face being arrested.
