Community Warden Service

Due to a restructure within the Community Warden Service, the team is now split into two distinct services. The original Warden role remains the same however there have been a number of changes in terms of added responsibilities and resources to provide an enhanced and improved service. The Wardens now have the power to issue fixed penalty notices for littering and dog fouling as part of targeted initiatives. There has been a change in shift patterns to working at peak times of disorder including weekends and and they now have access to CCTV vehicles.

  • An integrated part of the community with regular engagement
  • Carry out foot patrols in tasked areas/hot spots
  • Issue fixed penalty notices for dog fouling and littering during targeted initiatives
