‘Time to Talk’ to your Police and Crime Commissioner – March 2023
Residents of Norfolk 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’ next ‘Time to Talk’ session, where people are given direct one-to-one access to him, is due to take place on Thursday 30 March.
The ‘surgery-style’ event will be held virtually and over the telephone, with people being allocated 15-minute slots to raise any questions or concerns.
Giles’ Police, Crime and Community Safety Plan for Norfolk 2022-2024, launched in March of last year, sets out the strategic direction for policing the county with objectives for how policing services will be delivered in Norfolk. Residents with specific policing issues to raise are encouraged to get in touch.
“It’s very important that I have this opportunity to regularly engage with residents on issues that affect them at a local level. My online and telephone Time to Talk sessions enable residents to speak to me directly from all corners of the county,” said Giles Orpen-Smellie.
“Since I began these sessions, I hope I have helped most of the callers with their concerns, and being able to speak to people on a one-to-one basis has been very helpful for me to understand the issues that matter to Norfolk people.”
Giles’ regular in person ‘Time to Talk’ sessions will continue with a tour of libraries, beginning in April.
The sessions are in addition to the quarterly PCC Accountability Meetings that 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 to raise questions submitted by people across the county.
