Littlehampton’s community warden scheme is a joint initiative between us and town councils. Its aim is to provide a dedicated community engagement service across the whole of Littlehampton. This page provides a summary of the community warden’s role and access to the team’s monthly activity reports.
What we can do
- provide a reassuring, uniformed patrolling presence
- provide an eyes and ears service aimed at reducing fear of crime and improving the quality of life
- report environmental issues, notably dog fouling and fly-tipping, and help to preserve the environment
- reduce incidents of anti-social behaviour by intervening at an early stage, and liaising with the police where needed
- support communities by encouraging activities for young people.
- support vulnerable members of the community by preventing isolation
- offer advice on crime prevention and fire safety in the home
- work in partnership with other agencies to help benefit the community
- act as professional witnesses
What we do not do
- we are not a replacement for the police
- we are not an emergency service or response team. Crime and anti-social behaviour should be reported to the police directly
- as we do not work 24/7 there will be times when neither warden is on duty
- we do not provide a care service, but are able to refer vulnerable people to relevant support agencies
- we are not parking wardens and cannot issue parking tickets
