Community Wardens work to:
• reduce crime and the fear of crime
• reduce antisocial behaviour
• improve the environmental quality
• assist in building community pride
There are currently 3 Community Wardens who cover the whole of Moray and provide mutual support to our Housing Liaison Officer
Antisocial behaviour involving Council tenants is dealt with by the Housing Liaison Officer, whilst Housing Association tenants are managed by the relevant Registered Social Landlord. They all work to the guidance laid out in the Antisocial Behaviour etc (Scotland) Act 2004.
Community Wardens will attend to disputes in the private housing sector.
Wardens and HLO can provide basic mediation techniques enabling them to deal with neighbour disputes.
Community Wardens also investigate any other low level antisocial behaviour in the community and where appropriate work closely with the Police in doing so.
Wardens are authorised to issue fixed penalty notices for litter, dog fouling and fly tipping offences.
Wardens also investigate Abandoned Vehicles.
