The Safer Communities Team

What is the Safer Communities Team? 

The Safer Communities Team are tasked with upholding the safety of the local communities in the Perth and Kinross area. You may see Community Wardens in your local area from late afternoon to evening.

The team provides a link between the people who make up the local community, Perth and Kinross Council and other partners with an interest in improving the area and keeping everyone safe. If you have any concerns you need help with, you can approach Community Wardens. 

Community Wardens want to help young people too and make sure they are safe when out and about. If you see them, take a few minutes to get to know them. They will be happy to see you.
