Four people were given cannabis warnings, one person was given a penalty notice for cannabis use and two people received fines for dodging train fares.
Dog enforcement officers prosecuted three dog owners for breaking bye laws.
Vehicle stops took place in Queenstown Road and Battersea Park Road, in Battersea, seizing two cars for no insurance, while another driver was arrested for fraud offences.
Two further arrests for common assault and public order offences were made on the estate.
