The Community Safety team at Caerphilly County Borough Council has gained a new Community Safety Warden, to further the council's commitment to keeping our streets safe.
Jenna Baldwin has been recruited to the team of Community Safety Wardens, who act as the eyes and ears of our community. She will undertake uniformed patrols, providing our county borough's streets, parks, playgrounds and estates with a high profile and comforting presence.
Jenna, who joined the team last week, commented, "I am pleased to join a team that makes such a huge difference to the residents of the borough. In addition to helping tackle anti-social behaviour, we are here to support and reassure the community, so that they can feel safe going about their day-to-day lives."
The Community Safety Wardens work alongside police in providing support to residents and act as a deterrent against anti-social behaviour in the community. They also have the authority to issue fixed penalty notices for environmental issues, such as fly tipping, littering and dog fouling offences.
Cllr Dave Poole, Cabinet Member for Community and Leisure Services, met with Jenna and discussed the responsibilities of the Community Safety Wardens. He said, "I would like to personally welcome Jenna to the team. I am sure she will prove a great addition to the patrols that the Wardens undertake in their effort to look after the best interests of all the residents in our borough."
