The main purpose of the community wardens' scheme is to reduce crime and disorder and link together all parts of the community, acting as a highly visible reassuring presence.

The wardens work in partnership with the police and other partners, focussing on public reassurance, enforcement, prevention, community initiatives and engagement, and the deterrence of anti-social behaviour.

They gather intelligence from residents, business, the CCTV control room and partners, conducting routine reassurance patrols in town centres and targeted patrols at hotspot areas across the borough.

Alongside dispersing groups causing anti-social behaviour and addressing begging activity, the wardens support operations that have been organised by partners, prioritising work connected to issues such as knife crime, violence reduction and anti-social behaviour.

The team also have their own enforcement powers and undertake operations throughout the year to tackle issues such as anti-social drinking, cycling on pavements and in pedestrianised areas, dog-fouling and dog control, and littering.

    Community warden visit

    by Lorraine, 7 months ago


    A warden attended our community centre to provide us with local information and to tell us more about the role of Community Wardens. We were able to speak to him about any local issues or concerns we had which I found reassuring. The warden is coming back to the community centre soon to speak to us about how we can keep ourselves safe from scammers in the area.
