INGLEBY BARWICK COMMUNITY WARDEN SERVICE
Ingleby Barwick Community Warden Service, with its own four dedicated Wardens, commenced on 20th April 2004 for an initial twelve-month period.
The Wardens were funded through the Parish Council precept costing approximately 13 pence per household per week.
The scheme currently provides for two Wardens on duty for five hours per day, 365 days a year and is run in partnership with Stockton-on-Tees Borough Council who recruited and trained the Wardens.
The Wardens undertake and have the authority to perform a number of duties, which include the following:
- to support the local Police and Community Support Officers;
- provide general caretaking duties i.e. report missing/damaged nameplates, street lights out, fly tipping, graffiti etc;
- issue fixed penalty fines for litter dropping/dog fouling;
- create a feeling of security/well being;
- liaise with youths/residents/elderly;
- protection of community assets.
Regular confidential reports are received by the Parish Council from Stockton Borough Councils Security Centre, detailing the duties carried out by the Wardens and any specific incidents, which have occurred.
Ingleby Barwick Parish Council is currently reviewing the scheme, which has now been up and running for seven months.
As part of the review process the Parish Council would like to hear any comments the residents of Ingleby Barwick have on the scheme.
