First we took a look at what a warden does for a living – that mainly they are out and about making sure that people obey the rules and fined accordingly.
We saw the main difference between a warden and a policeman. Wardens cannot carry any weapons or arrest people, but policeman do.
Like everyone else wardens encounter their difficulties at work such as when people are not nice to them when they correct their bad behavior.
