Conservative Candidate for Police and Crime Commissioner Election

Giles Orphan Smellie was selected as the candidate from a panel of four candidates. 

Giles said: "I am delighted to be selected as the Conservative Police and Crime Commissioner candidate for Norfolk.

"People living and working across Norfolk want to feel safe on the streets and in their homes. If elected, working closely with the chief constable, I will do everything I can to support the police in keeping our communities safe.

"The prime minister, Boris Johnson, and the Conservative government have shown their commitment to the police with the plans to recruit 20,000 extra officers.

"I want to work to ensure Norfolk gets its fair share of new officers and continues to get the investment needed for existing officers to continue their work to keep people across the county safe."

The post of police and crime commissioner was created in November 2012. And the election will take place in May 2020 as the current Conservative PCC, Lorne Green, will not be re-standing.
