Kent Community Safety Partnership
The aim of this partnership is to create safer and stronger communities.
To build community confidence and reassurance. To deter
anti-social behaviour. To improve access to local authorities and to
foster social inclusion.
Kent Community Wardens are based in villages, rural and some
urban neighbourhoods across Kent and are a key link between local
people, residents associations, neighbourhood watch schemes and Kent
The Wardens act as the eyes and ears of the community and although
they do not have enforcement powers, they will tackle low level
crime - anti-social behaviour, graffiti, abandoned cars and fly
tipping. They listen to the views of local people and work with the
public to prevent and reduce crime.
Wardens support victims of crime, the elderly and vulnerable
members of the community, through home visits and by giving crime
prevention advice. They engage with young people, supporting youth
clubs, forums and other activities.
The role of the Warden is to:
· Provide a reassuring conspicuous presence.
· Addressing anti-social behaviour.
· Provide information and advice on County Council, local
district councils and other public services.
· Act as eyes and ears for other agencies
· Promote community solidarity and assist and enable communities
to solve problems.
