The Stalking Protection Act was given Royal Ascent on 15 March and will now introduce new powers that give police greater authority to address the specific danger that perpetrators pose while they gather more evidence. The powers include restricting perpetrators actions, including stopping them from contacting the victim, and the ability to refer stalkers to be psychologically assessed.

Join us on 25 June to find out more on the new legislation and the impact it will have on your work to deter perpetrators and protect victims of stalking. Learn lessons on how the legislation can be implemented in practice and how to overcome potential challenges.

Key issues to be addressed include:

  • Overview of the Stalking Protection Act & how it differs from the Harassment Act 1997
  • Creating more efficient support service for victims of stalking
  • Dealing with offenders in breach of protection orders
  • Investigating alleged stalkers, the accusations and assessing the risk
  • Measures to protect victims of stalking
  • Proactive responses to prevent harm to victims

About the event:
