Villagers fed up with gangs of youths causing trouble in their community are to meet tonight to demand action.
Residents say groups of teenagers are gathering in Kennoway and causing disorder and vandalism.
A public meeting is being held in the Sandy Brae Community Centre, which is expected to be attended by a senior officer from Police Scotland and Fife Council’s area services manager Dave Paterson.
Leven, Kennoway and Largo councillor Tom Adams, one of the organisers, said youngsters aged 14 to 17 were coming from around Levenmouth and Kennoway itself.
Mr Adams said: “They are getting tanked up on drink and walking about scratching cars and the like.
“The police are telling us that it’s really been going on the last two or three weeks but people in Kennoway say it is happening every weekend and they have had enough.
“There is simply not enough police.
“We need a more visible police presence but how can we get that when we don’t have the officers? Parents also need to be asking what their children are doing.
“The lack of police is a problem but parents need to take responsibility for their own bairns.”
Mr Adams expects a large turnout at the meeting, which starts at 6pm.
“Even if we could get a couple of CCTV cameras and a promise that police will go to Kennoway more regularly it would be a step in the right direction,” he said.
Police Scotland said engagement with the community resulted in Kennoway and Leven being targeted through its Campaign Against Violence last weekend.
The action saw two 17-year-olds issued with fixed penalty notices for possession of alcohol and crimes of dishonesty.
Community Inspector Tom Brown said: “The residents of Kennoway have quite rightly raised issues which are affecting the quality of life within the town.
“We will ensure their concerns are addressed and take action against anyone who is involved in disorderly or threatening behaviour.”
Police also confirmed that a male had been charged in connection with an assault in Kennoway on March 27 and inquiries were continuing into the incident.
