Street wardens arrive in High Wycombe

New street wardens 5 July 2019

Three new additions to Wycombe District Council’s staff are now on hand to offer shoppers a helpful, friendly presence in High Wycombe town centre.

The council has employed three full-time street wardens to work in partnership with HWBidco’s Town Ranger, Thames Valley Police and support agencies based in High Wycombe.

As well as providing a reassuring, visible presence in the community, the wardens – working with the council’s partners – are on hand to help deter crime and anti-social behaviour, reduce the fear of crime, and foster community cohesion. They will also take enforcement action if required.

Cllr Graham Peart BEM, Cabinet Member for Community, said: “Our new street wardens are a very welcome addition to the Wycombe community. Do say hello if you spot them, and do let them know if you see any anti-social behaviour.”

The employment of the three street wardens is the latest initiative by WDC to improve the town centre. The council continues to work with local business and potential businesses to widen the offer for residents and shoppers.
