Parents in Alrewas are being warned they could face fines if their children are found breaching coronavirus rules.
Police say they have received reports of groups of young people gathering at the bowling green of the Royal British Legion.
PCSO Rhys Rockley, from Staffordshire Police, said patrols were being stepped up as a result.
“They have been seen to be involved in drug taking, causing criminal damage and breaching COVID regulations.
“We will be patrolling the area and If they are caught at the location and committing offences they will be dealt with accordingly. If they have no valid reason to be there they will be given fines for breach of regulations.
“If they are under the age of 18, parents will be in receipt of the fine.”PCSO Rhys Rockley, Staffordshire Police
