Rotherham Council wardens have teamed up with South Yorkshire Police to strengthen their powers in the the fight against anti-social behaviour.

Thanks to South Yorkshire Police’s community safety accreditation scheme, wardens now have stronger powers to deal with incidents of anti-social behaviour, allowing for faster response times, joined-up working and a stronger presence on the streets.

The new approach, in operation from the beginning of the year, will be used when needed and will help deal with such issues as the drinking of alcohol in the street and public places.
