THEY’RE the eyes and ears of our communities.
But the Kirklees Rangers are more than just wardens in our towns – they’re environmental officers, social workers and anti-social behaviour busters.
They work in and around some of the most deprived areas and they are the people to turn to when problems arise.
They deal with all sorts of issues from fly tipping to cracked paving, graffiti and littering.
They also offer advice to residents needing council help and advice about services which could improve their lives.
The Rangers are seen and heard in the communities where they work.
And their aim is simple – to make a positive difference.
It cannot be underestimated how valuable it is for vulnerable residents to have someone to turn to and in times of difficulties.
They’ve proved to be an asset to those most in need and a reassuring presence which is vital in giving people peace of mind in their own communities.
