'Time to Talk' to your Police and Crime Commissioner

People across Norfolk are once again being invited to meet with their Police and Crime Commissioner to discuss any issues they may have about crime and policing in their community. 

The PCC’s next ‘Time to Talk’ session where people are given direct one-to-one access to Giles Orpen-Smellie, is due to take place on Friday 8 April 2022. 

It is the third ‘surgery-style’ event held by Giles and will be held virtually or over the telephone with people being allocated 15-minute slots to raise any questions or concerns. 

Giles Orpen Smellie“I am really pleased with the way residents across Norfolk have taken to my Time to Talk sessions so far this year,” said Giles. 

“Given the interest in the last two events it is clear people are keen to have regular, direct access to their PCC. 

“I have talked to residents about a number of different issues and concerns, and I hope the third event will prove to be as equally positive and constructive. 

“If you would like to speak to me about crime and policing in Norfolk please take the opportunity to book some time in my diary – I really would like to hear from you.” 

The ‘Time to Talk’ sessions, which Giles hosts monthly, are complemented by regular tours of towns and villages across Norfolk by the PCC throughout the year. 

The latest event comes only days before Giles’ is due to launch his Police, Crime and Community Safety Plan for the county on Thursday (31 March). 

The Time to Talk sessions also come in addition to the quarterly PCC Accountability Meetings Giles hosts to publicly question, challenge and hold the Chief Constable and senior officers directly to account for their delivery of his plan, as well as raise questions submitted by people across the county.
