Based within the community, our neighbourhood wardens work alongside partner agencies to improve the quality of life for everyone and promote community cohesion and resilience. The wardens undertake a number of activities, including enforcement to community development.
The wardens can help the community in the following ways:
- Provide a reassuring, uniformed patrolling presence.
- Provide an efficient eyes and ears service aimed at reducing fear of crime and improving the quality of life.
- Deal with environmental crime issues, notably dog fouling and littering, and help to preserve the environment.
- Reduce incidents of criminal damage and antisocial behaviour by taking enforcement action where necessary, including issuing Fixed Penalty Notices, or referring to the police.
- Support the community by encouraging the establishment of activities for young people.
- Support vulnerable members of the community by preventing isolation.
- Offer advice on crime prevention and fire safety in the home.
- Work in partnership with other agencies to help benefit the community. Act as professional witnesses.
The wardens are not:
- A replacement for the police
- An emergency service or response team
- A 24/7 service. There will be times when no wardens are on duty
- A care service. The neighbourhood wardens are able to signpost elderly and vulnerable people to relevant agencies
- Parking wardens. The neighbourhood wardens cannot issue parking tickets
As a service, we believe that prevention is better than cure and as a result the team spend time working to prevent issues by dealing with the long-term causes in partnership with other agencies rather than just the symptoms.
