Community Presence Service

Community presence officers patrol all areas of Camden

You can make a request for community presence officers to visit an area:

Our community presence officers:

  • provide a reassuring presence
  • improve community safety
  • deter antisocial behaviour
  • foster civic pride
  • improve the street environment
  • used to be called Community Wardens

Our duties

  • daily patrols, a visible presence on the street, parks and estates
  • reassure local people and make them feel safe
  • report suspicious behaviour to the police and other enforcement agencies
  • deter antisocial behaviour in public places
  • report problems within the street environment, such as graffiti and abandoned vehicles
  • develop community spirit

Community presence officers improve your quality of life

We have been working closely with the community in recent months to set up schemes to benefit local residents, visitors and workers in the area.

We work on a variety of projects with different groups from the community, such as schools, day centres and hostels.

We aim to improve the quality of life of all the community, by linking street environment issues with community safety and looking at ways of reducing antisocial behaviour.

We are here to try and help residents and visitors if you have a problem. If you feel intimidated or upset by the antisocial behaviour of others, if you have a recurring problem such as drug debris on your doorstep or repeated vandalism let us know. We can try and help with the immediate problem and pass information on to the right section of the council or police and look at ways to deal with issues in the long term.

The community presence officers do a lot more joint patrolling now with other agencies such as housing, the police and safer streets team.
