Three problem families living on the Stonebridge Estate will be evicted from their homes unless they behave themselves following a court hearing.
The households in Shrewsbury Road, Windrush Road and Lawrence Avenue, have been given a Suspended Possession Orders (SPO) which means they must comply with conditions laid down by Willesden County Court.
Brent Police teamed up with the council and Hyde Housing Association, who manages homes on the estate, to tackle the families who have members either embroiled in criminality or anti-social behaviour.
If they breach the SPO the police can apply for a Full Possession Order (FPO) which will result in them being evicted from their homes.
Chief Inspector Andy Jones, from Brent Police, said: “What many people that commit these crimes and behave in this manner do not appreciate is that the result of their criminality may not just be about being arrested and going to court.
