Who are they?
Safer Community Wardens are "the eyes and ears" of the communities and work with local residents to improve their safety and living standards. They act as a link to other agencies and work closely with area housing teams, Police Scotland, Scottish Fire & Rescue, local schools, youth clubs and voluntary groups in their patrol areas and Tenants & Residents Groups. They report on any issues/concerns that may have a detrimental affect on the wellbeing of communities.
Safer Community Wardens patrol their areas on foot and mobile patrol seven days a week including every evening and weekend. Their uniforms make them very easy to identify and they are delighted when residents stop them to seek advice or just to have a chat.
Safer Community Wardens have instigated several initiatives in the areas where they work to help both young and old residents.
Junior Community Wardens - Children in Primary School are given awareness training in a fun environment about community safety and personal responsibility.
Vulnerable adults - Safer Community Wardens visit those who may be vulnerable, whether a person has been the victim of a crime, anti social behaviour or requires support Safer Community Wardens will ensure that they assist to bring the lives of vulnerable adults back to normality.
Home Safety Visits - Safer Community Wardens carry out joint Home Safety Visits with the Scottish Fire and Rescue Service.
