Community Safety Wardens

Our Community Safety Wardens work across Calderdale to help keep our communities safe.

This service aims to create a step change in the way we respond to nuisance and quality of life issues. These include:

  • unauthorised traveller encampments; and
  • anti-social behaviour.

It builds and complements existing Council services, focusing on enforcement and visibility.

They are responsible for the Council’s public space CCTV provision and manage a number of radio networks across Calderdale.

They are equipped with the powers required to issue fixed penalty notices to tackle dog fouling, littering and fly-tipping.

Community Safety Wardens work in strong partnership with other agencies, such as the Police and the Fire Service. This is to provide support in times of need and through intelligence sharing. They are the Council’s eyes and ears on the ground and are deployed where needed in Calderdale.
