Twin police operations are tackling anti-social behaviour and under-age drinking problems at Cromer and Sheringham.
Operation Salt has already made an impact on the weekend antics of yobs at Sheringham - with several people handed on-the-spot fines.
And Operation Pepper has been tackling under-age drinking in pubs and clubs at Cromer which could see one local venue having its licence reviewed.
Chief Insp Steve Jones said extra officers were drafted into the two towns to tackle the known problems, and it was having an impact.
Anti-social behaviour at Sheringham was “linked to the night time economy” and saw youths “swearing, acting stupid” and causing criminal damage.
However officers were able to hand out £80 fines to people who were simply drunk and disorderly, and had done so to eight people.

“I won't tolerate anti-social behaviour. People who cause misery for others will be subject to robust policing,” said
Chief Insp Jones.
The operation was expanding to Cromer, where Operation Pepper had seen plain clothes officers visiting licensed premises.
It had resulted in one premises having its licence “potentially subject to review by the police and council,” he added.
