The order provided additional powers to police the area.
MPS Brent said on Twitter: “This is due to recent gang violence in the area and linked UME (unlicenced music events).”
A separate section 34 dispersal order was put in place in Stonebridge and surrounding areas from 4pm on Friday until 4pm on Sunday (August 2).
MPS Brent said this is “due to anticipated antisocial behaviours, crime and disorder around the Ace Cafe, on the North Circular Road”.
Dispersal orders provide police with the extra powers to break up groups of two or more people, where they believe their behaviour is causing a nuisance, harassment or distress.
Scotland Yard said there have been no arrests and enquiries are ongoing.
