Community Wardens responsibilities

The Community Wardens main priorities are to reduce litter and anti-social behaviour. We aim to make people feel safer; if want help or advice, come and talk to us. We patrol the town’s streets every day between 10am and 7.30pm.

  • We issue fixed penalty notices for litter and dog fouling and investigate fly tipping
  • We pick up and rehome stray dogs in Crawley, this does not include the rehoming of any unwanted pet dogs
  • We are the first point of contact for illegal encampments of travellers and people camping in tents
  • We are equipped with body worn video cameras to gather footage of incidents to help combat anti-social behaviour around the town

Accredited by the Sussex Police Community Safety Scheme

Accreditation means that wardens can use a range of additional powers to tackle anti-social behaviour.

It is a criminal offence not to comply with the instructions of the Community Wardens.

All the powers fall within section 46 of the Police Reform Act 2002 and are not over and above those in use by Police Community Support Officers.

Working together

The scheme improves the way we work together with the police to tackle community safety and share intelligence. It also gives us additional powers to deal with issues that are important to the community.
