Dubbo students involved in violent, filmed fights have been warned they'll get a door knock from police.
This week a series of videos emerged on Instagram featuring disturbing videos of high school students in Dubbo participating in violent brawls, while bystanders cheered and encouraged the violence.
Some of the Instagram accounts have since been disabled by the company.
NSW Police Assistant Commissioner Geoff McKechnie said they were aware of the social media videos which had been surfacing over the last few months, and the investigation into those matters individually was ongoing.
"Our police here in Dubbo have obviously been in touch with some of those organisations involved," he said.
Assistant Commissioner McKechnie warned, particularly to school students, that there was "no future" in participating in these types of violent brawls.
"Particularly at a young age it can only lead to making your life more difficult later on," he said.
"No one wants a criminal history, no one wants to be in the criminal justice system, particularly young people, and we don't want that either."
He encouraged students to take advantage to advice and assistance around schools and from police if they were having problems.
"If you are having particular problems in relationships or at your school, wherever it might be, seek some advice on how to remedy that without resorting to violence and becoming swept up in these things we see on video."
Police are encouraging anyone who may have information to come forward, however Assistant Commissioner McKechnie warned those participating in the videos would be identified.
"Things are recorded on video, you are going to be identified, you are going to get a door knock from the police," he said.
"So it's kind of senseless behaviour, because the people recording it and posting it, you really do need to question their motives as much as the people that are involved in the incidents."
