Early help and prevention service

    Community safety and youth service

    The Community Safety Team and Youth Service work closely together. They arrange events for young people to give them something to do. It also helps to reduce anti-social behaviour.

    The Community Safety Team

    The Community Safety Team work to protect our local communities. They reduce crime and disorder in west Cheshire. The team includes non-uniformed community safety officers (CSOs) and uniformed community safety wardens (CSWs). Officers are all based in police stations. They work with three dedicated police officers in Anti-Social Behaviour (ASB) Units.

    The Community Safety Team work to ensure:

    • all our families, children and young people are supported to get the best start in life
    • vulnerable adults and children feel safe and are protected
    • cleanest safest and most sustainable neighbourhoods in the country

    The CSOs manage the people responsible for ASB. They manage local areas where ASB takes place. The CSWs work alongside the CSOs. They have powers to stop dog fouling, litter and illegal parking.
