Speaking about the initiative, chairman of the policy and finance committee, councillor Dr James Walsh, said: “Your community wardens are here to help.

Littlehampton's three new community wardens will aim to help reduce nuisance behavour and offer crime-prevention advice.

“They will provide support to help identify and reduce place-based nuisance behaviour, offer crime prevention and safety advice, and maintain strong working links with community groups and local agencies to promote the interests and concerns of local people.

“They are keen to engage with residents, visitors, and businesses alike so if you see them out and about in your community, please say hello.

“Working together we can bring about positive changes to our town.”
