Community Wardens

The Warden Role:

A Community Warden is responsible for dealing with general issues surrounding the community; this may vary from encouraging the community to work together to tackling low level crime and antisocial behaviour.  Community Wardens do not make arrests but do work closely with Kent Police and other professional authorities and have been fully trained to the Community Safety Accreditation Scheme.  A large part of a Warden’s job role involves liaising with Trading Standards to tackle scams and to help those who have been victimised.  Not only are they there to take details from the individual regarding the scam/s they have fallen victim to but they are also there for reassurance and to help the individual on a more personal level.  Welfare visits are a very common aspect of the warden role that aim to help vulnerable people receive the support they need. Community Wardens also liaise with numerous agencies varying from social services to the RSPCA  to provide the best possible service to the communities.
