City Wardens

City Wardens provide a flexible service that responds to the needs of the communities they serve.  The service was launched in January 2009 by redesigning the roles and responsibilities previously undertaken by Parking Enforcement Officers, Environmental Wardens and Community Wardens.

The wardens help to deter antisocial behaviour, littering and illegal parking in the city.  They also help to reassure the public that Aberdeen City Council is doing all it can to keep communities safe and secure.

In January 2016 the wardens started to use video badge cameras. The aim is to help tackle violence and antisocial behaviour throughout the city. Footage captured on the cameras can be used as evidence and shown in court, helping to secure convictions.

While on duty City Wardens wear high visibility yellow vests. The jacket has the words 'City Warden' or 'Senior City Warden' prominently displayed on the back. Their hats are very distinctive as they have a blue and white checked band and carry the Council crest.

There are 64 City Wardens and 10 Senior City Wardens in Aberdeen.

City Wardens patrol all communities in the city.

City Wardens patrol from 7am to 10.30pm, 7 days a week. Additionally the wardens will work outside these hours to deal with any relevant issues.

The City Wardens use their enforcement powers when appropriate and take immediate action on issues such as littering, dog fouling and rogue parking.
