College work on stalking and harassment

As National Stalking Awareness Week begins, the College continues to work to equip the police service to identify and tackle these offences.

David Tucker, crime and criminal justice lead for the College of Policing, said: “The College is supporting forces to be more effective in protecting and safeguarding people who may be at risk of harm. We have developed a comprehensive course delivered to recruits and new investigators that addresses a range of public protection issues, including stalking and harassment.

"In the coming months, we will be publishing new guidance on stalking and harassment. It updates the existing version to reflect changes in legislation and emerging knowledge about the experience of victims and the behaviour of perpetrators."
