An estimated 2.5 million people in the UK are stalked each year.* It takes on average 100 incidents before victims report it to police** and just 5% of those stalking cases reported in England and Wales result in a charge by the CPS.
Join Westminster Insight’s Tackling Stalking Digital Conference, chaired by Saskia Garner, Head of Policy and Campaigns at the Suzy Lamplugh Trust, to discuss collaborative working across the police, criminal justice, probation, health, and victim advocates services, that improves prevention, victim support and conviction rates for stalking in all its forms.
Hear a keynote address directly from Jess Phillips MP, Co-Chair of the UN Women APPG, on the latest updates in policy and funding for stalking interventions and understand the legal definitions of stalking and harassment.
Get inspiration from best practice in policing strategies to tackle stalking. Hear how you can ensure all teams are equipped to provide the appropriate and safe response to stalking, including first responders. We will discuss how to work with the CPS and get justice for victims through improved use of Stalking Protection Orders (SPOs) and appropriate sentencing.
