Residents are being invited to meet with Police and Crime Commissioner Giles Orpen-Smellie to discuss any issues they may have about crime and policing in Norfolk.  

Giles’ is next due to visit Great Yarmouth Library, Tolhouse Street, Great Yarmouth, NR30 2SH, between 10am and 12 noon on Friday 2 June. All are welcome at the event and there is no need to book.

Again, all are welcome. 

PCC Giles Orpen-Smellie, said: “If you would like to speak to me about crime and policing in Norfolk please take the opportunity to pop along to one of my events to speak to me face-to face, or book some time in my diary for a virtual ‘Time to Talk’ session. 

“My last few visits at libraries across the county and ‘Time to Talk’ sessions have been really informative, and I hope as many of you as possible take the opportunity to meet me – I really would like to hear from you.”
