Let’s Talk Stalking campaign

Written by on 20 April 2021

Police in Staffordshire are backing a national campaign highlighting stalking after an increase in offences.

 

They were 2,088 offences recorded last year compared to 823 the year before.

 

The force says it’s down to increased victim and officer awareness, as well as changes to the national recording of such crimes. 

 

Detectives say despite the increase, it means they’re better supporting victims of domestic abuse and where appropriate we can use the tools specifically available under stalking legislation to protect them.
