‘Time to Talk’ to your Police and Crime Commissioner

Residents across Norfolk are once again being invited to meet with the county’s 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 11 March 2022.

It is the second ‘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.

“I was really pleased with how my first Time to Talk session went last month and hope to be able to speak to as many people as possible again this time around,” said Giles.

“It is clear from the last event that people have a lot to say about policing in Norfolk.

“I was at times moved by some of the conversations I had, and I hope the sessions continue to be a positive, constructive way for residents to air their concerns.

“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 on a monthly basis, will be complemented by regular visits by the PCC to communities across Norfolk throughout the year.

  • Giles will be in Diss on Friday 4 March. The PCC will be at The Mere's Mouth from 1pm to 3pm with Beat Manager Andy Baker. Residents are invited to pop along and say hello.

The sessions and tours of towns and villages across Norfolk 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 the county’s current Police and Crime Plan, as well as raise questions submitted by people across the county.
