‘Time to Talk’ to your Police and Crime Commissioner
Residents across Norfolk are 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 new ‘Time to Talk’ meetings will be held virtually or over the telephone and for the first time will give people direct one-to-one access to their PCC, Giles Orpen-Smellie.
The first PCC surgery will take place on Friday 4 February with people being allocated 15-minute slots with Giles to raise any questions or concerns.
“I am really keen to take the time to meet with people on a one-to-one basis to hear any concerns or points they would like to make about policing in Norfolk,” said Giles.
“It is clear from my mailbox that people have a lot to say and there is no better way for a point to be understood than through direct access.
“I would like to encourage people to take the opportunity to book some time in my diary when I will be pleased to hear what they have to say and talk through any issues.”
The ‘Time to Talk’ sessions, which Giles is looking to host on a monthly basis, will be complemented by regular visits by the PCC to communities across Norfolk throughout the year.
The Time to Talk 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.
