Community Wardens work with partners and residents to help build safer and stronger communities. They provide a reassuring presence and help deter anti-social behaviour and increase public confidence in the safety of their communities.
Wardens are not a substitute for the Police or for other statutory services, but complement them. They do not, for example, operate an emergency or response service - the effectiveness of wardens comes instead from working with, and adding value to, the work of local agencies.
