For National Stalking Awareness Week 2024, our theme is "Join Forces Against Stalking".

 

Effective multi-agency working is crucial for ensuring victims of stalking are supported from their point of disclosure right through until a conviction and beyond. This year, we are calling for agencies across the police, CPS and healthcare to join forces, and work together to effectively support victims of stalking. We will be showcasing examples of best practice and highlighting the important role multi-agency working has played for the victims we support.

  

Report

Suzy Lamplugh Trust sent Freedom of Information (FOI) requests to all 43 police forces and to the CPS to better understand the challenges to achieving a stalking conviction. Data gathered from the results of these suggest that there are still systemic issues across agencies when dealing with stalking cases, and vast gaps in national data about victims on their journey through the criminal justice system that are preventing understanding and reform.
