Community Warden Service
The Community Warden Service has recently been restructured to provide an enhanced role in tackling anti-social behaviour in our communities. Wardens now work closely with our Community Safety Hub partners; Police Scotland, Scottish Fire and Rescue Service, Local Housing Teams and Anti-social Investigation Team providing Investigative Support to support our partnership working. Wardens work at identified peak times when we know anti-social behaviour is most likely to occur.
The role of the Community Warden (Investigative Support)
- The eyes and ears of the community
- An integrated part of the community with regular engagement
- Use CCTV vehicles to patrol South Lanarkshire and assist in gathering information from known anti-social behaviour hot spots and issues that have been reported to us
- Will conduct enquiries for low level anti-social behaviour complaints
- Carry out specifically tasked foot patrols where required
- Community Wardens operate various shifts over peak days and times between 10am and 3am.
Our Wardens are there to provide high visibility reassurance to the residents of South Lanarkshire and to support the council’s partnership approach to working together to tackle anti-social behaviour.
Wardens gather information and evidence to support actions taken by the council and partners and also act as a deterrent to anti-social behaviour occurring.
Wardens also help to keep people safe, supporting those enjoying nights out within South Lanarkshire town centres and carry out vehicle CCTV patrols of our housing areas to support residents.
Please feel free to approach our Wardens to discuss any issues you may have. They can also contact the relevant council department for you on your behalf.
