Parenting classes.
By giving them everything they've ever asked for, and not applying consistent rules and discipline, you have raised spoilt brats. They're proving it now.
Why in the world would cops have to intervene in tantrums when your kids are the ages that they are? This strongly suggests a serious lack of parenting skills.

Well, if you have had the cops at your house over the tantrums of children this age, and they are acting like 2 year olds, then I'm sorry, but you have raised brats.

"we given them everything we have taken them places given them treats"

Right there is probably your problem. You've given them everything. You have raised spoiled brats.

You can't possibly have tried everything CONSISTENTLY. Whatever you do, you need to be consistent about it. If you take away the tv, computers, outings, toys, whatever the logical consequence is for the behaviour they are displaying. What are they throwing these tantrums about?

Can I ask why the cops have been at your house? Surely a tantrum by a child doesn't result in the police being called. It must be worse than that.

If I was a fly on your wall and could see the interactions between you and your kids, I may be able to give advice, but I would strongly suggest some parenting classes.

You need to find a punishment appropriate to their actions and stick with it. They may fight and grumble, but you need to be firm and consistent. Nothing has worked because you either didn't find the right thing that they care about, or you didn't stick with it long enough.
