Street Warden Training

STRANRAER'S first ever street warden team went into training this week - and they vowed to make their patch a safer and happier place to live.

The six-strong Community Warden team will be the eyes and ears of the Dick's Hill and Belmont area. Decked out in maroon uniforms the officers will patrol the streets and report to the relevant authorities on any nuisance - be it drug dealing, nuisance neighbours or dog dirt.

They will not possess the power to arrest but it is hoped their presence will cut the crime levels and improve the environment for locals to enjoy a better quality of life.

At the head of the team is Wigtown man Shaun Plows, a former production control engineer from the Midlands. As Senior Warden he said:

"This is a challenge and is the chance to do something for the community who, for years, felt like they were treated almost as second class citizens.

"These people deserve a certain quality of life and we will strive to improve the environment and reduce the fear of crime these people face in everyday life."
