Community Safety Wardens on patrol

Newport City Centre
Community Safety Wardens employed by Newport City Council are to be more visible on the streets of the city from Monday 7 October.
A change of shift pattern has been introduced so they can regularly spend more daylight hours in the city centre and other hotspot areas in the city.
Community safety wardens respond to complaints of anti-social behaviour, noise nuisance, littering and dog fouling.
They will be working from 1pm to 10pm seven days a week and will be patrolling areas of the city to address concerns raised by the public.
Complaints made to wardens at the end of a working shift will be addressed the following day.
Newport City Council’s cabinet member for licensing and regulation, Councillor Ray Truman, said it is important the wardens are visible, especially in the city centre.
“Our Community Safety Wardens do stirling work in responding to complaints from the public, especially if this involves anti-social behaviour, and we believe it is important they are seen by the public to give reassurance,” said Cllr Truman.
The council run service will also take complaints via email at firstname.lastname@example.org, via phone on 01633 656656 from 8am to 6pm and after 6pm on 01633 656667.
The public can also report incidents via the council website, visit www.newport.gov.uk/en/Transport-Streets/Anti-social-behaviour/Anti-social-behaviour.aspx
