‘Time to Talk’ to your Police and Crime Commissioner – May 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 Friday 12 May 2023.  

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.

"My regular Time to Talk sessions have helped give me a true insight into the views and concerns of people about crime and policing in Norfolk," said Giles Orpen-Smellie.

"It is really important to give people the opportunity to speak directly with myself on a one-to-one basis

"The last few Time to Talk sessions have been really informative and I hope my next event will prove equally as positive and constructive." 

Giles' sessions are in addition to the quarterly PCC Accountability Meetings he 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. 

If you are interested in booking a ‘Time to Talk’ session with the PCC on Friday 12 May between 9.30am and 12.30pm, please email: or call 01953 424455.
