    As others have said, call 911 in mass (and get others to do the same) always giving details of the people involved, as well as getting the name of whomever you are speaking with on the call. All that said, the sad reality is that it's a slow, painful process. There are a few trouble areas in my neighborhood and neighbors consistently call 911 and complain to the alderman with little avail. Things have definitely gotten better, but not at the pace you would think/hope. There's sometimes little accountability and a general sense of apathy towards loiterers who can have a major effect on an area.
