Community wardens

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
