Mr Green visited First Focus, a community organisation, during the morning of Thursday, October 26.

He was accompanied by Inspector Edward Brown, and spent over an hour at the charity, while cooking and art groups took place as normal.

The goal of the visit was to see the charity’s work in action, and to gain insight into the opinions of the community on local policing.

He talked to people about their experiences of policing, including recent instances of antisocial behaviour and drug offences in Fakenham.

The implications of proposed changes to the force were also discussed.

April Simnor, First Focus manager, said: “The visit was a fantastic opportunity to voice concerns and opinions on policing policy, and to have the public engage with him, which he was more than happy to do.”
