Norfolk residents invited to pose policing and crime questions to Chief Constable

Police and Crime Commissioner, Giles Orpen-Smellie is inviting residents of Norfolk to submit questions on policing and crime, ready for his PCC Accountability Meeting which will take place on Wednesday, 5 July at 10am.

These quarterly meetings allow Giles to publicly question, challenge and hold the Chief Constable and senior officers directly to account about how policing is delivered across the county.

Questions must be submitted prior to the meeting and the PCC is encouraging people to share their questions with him no later than 5pm on Tuesday, 20 June.

Giles said: “Since my appointment as Police and Crime Commissioner, it has been most valuable to understand how the real issues that concern communities are changing and to hear people’s experiences of policing.

“The priorities I set in my Police, Crime and Community Safety Plan 2022-24 were developed using feedback from local people, so the meetings are a genuine chance to contribute. These meetings give everyone the opportunity to gauge the police’s performance against the priorities, so I would encourage anyone with a concern or worry to send in their questions. This engagement is essential for my team and I to understand the public’s expectations and, hopefully, meet them in due course.”

The PCC’s Accountability Meeting’s agenda will include reports on the six priority areas set with the Police, Crime and Community Safety Plan:

  • Sustain Norfolk Constabulary
  • Visible and Trusted Policing
  • Tackling Crime
  • Prevent Offending
  • Support Victims
  • Safer and Stronger Communities

The next PAM will take place on Wednesday, 5 July at 10am in the Barsby Conference Room at the Office of the Police and Crime Commissioner, Building 7, Jubilee House, Falconers Chase, Wymondham, Norfolk NR18 OWW.

People are welcome to attend and observe the meeting in person. This will also be recorded and published on the OPCCN website. The deadline to register attendance is 5pm on Friday, 30 June.
