Code: BH/21/1368 Stalking awareness: Recognise, Respond and the Law, and Cyber Enabled Stalking

Stalking is a serious public protection and public health issue that affects the lives of an estimated 5,053,000 individuals every year. This means an ever-increasing pressure at grassroot level to respond effectively and efficiently to reports and disclosures of stalking as well as developing a more comprehensive multiagency model to manage the risk posed by stalkers. In turn, it inevitably means a need to improve knowledge, skills and access in this complex area.

Stalking campaigns are often build on small, seemingly isolated and low-level crimes. Early, well informed multiagency interventions are central to increase safety and wellbeing in addition to reducing reoffending and re-victimisation. Further challenges come in the way perpetrators are finding ever more innovative ways to target their victims, especially with the rise in cyber offending, and the significant amount of electronic tracking devices available for very little cost, and the increase in social media and web-based activities.
