Reduction In Vandalism And Disorder Points To Success Of Community Warden Scheme - Smith

>> 20 April 2012

Vandalism, youth disorder and underage drinking are all showing long-term downward trends according to a report presented to Aberdeenshire councillors yesterday (Thursday).

Members of the council’s Policy and Resources Committee heard that there had been a range of positive outcomes achieved in relation to community safety and anti-social behaviour. Local SNP councillor Stephen Smith, who sits on the Committee, highlighted the work done by the Peterhead-based Community Wardens in contributing to these.

Speaking at Thursday’s meeting of the council’s Policy and Resources Committee, Cllr Stephen Smith said:

These improvements are very welcome indeed and I think a large part of the credit for this must go to the Community Wardens.

Funding for these posts has been an issue in recent times but the Wardens are now an integral part of the community and are pro-active and visible.  As these results show, it is actually an investment to spend money on having Community Wardens as the savings made from a reduction in vandalism and anti-social behaviour are a benefit to the taxpayer.”
