The “Cyber Crime: Cyber Stalking” course includes cyber stalking, non-cyber stalking and harassment. The “Stalking and Harassment” course (which was released in April 2014) deals specifically with stalking and harassment offences, with emphasis on building a strong case, working closely with the police, appropriate charge selection, and engaging with victims throughout the legal process. The CPS maintains a central record of the number of prosecutors who have been trained to deal with stalking and harassment offences by way of the e-Learning courses.</p><p>The following data was extracted from the CPS HR Database and the online Prosecution College Database on 11 June 2014. The data is based on those barristers or solicitors who held a practising certificate in the relevant period and were employed by the CPS on 11 June 2014. The data covers the period 1 November 2012 (the month when the Cyber Stalking e-Learning module was revised to include the new stalking offences) to 11 June 2014.The data includes only those lawyers who have completed either the Cyber Stalking or Stalking and harassment e-Learning courses, including the evaluation modules, as the database records e-Learning based on completion of all elements of the course.</p><p><strong>CPS Cyber Stalking and CPS Stalking &amp; Harassment Completions: Lawyers by CPS Area:</strong></p><table><tbody><tr><td><p><strong>Group</strong></p></td><td><p><strong>Area</strong></p></td><td><p><strong>Completions</strong></p></td></tr><tr><td><p><strong>Casework Divisions</strong></p></td><td><p> </p></td><td><p>99</p></td></tr><tr><td><p><strong>Head Quarters</strong></p></td><td><p> </p></td><td><p>15</p></td></tr><tr><td><p><strong>National Areas</strong></p></td><td><p>CPS Direct</p></td><td><p>268</p></td></tr><tr><td><p> </p></td><td><p>East Midlands</p></td><td><p>91</p></td></tr><tr><td><p> </p></td><td><p>East of England</p></td><td><p>81</p></td></tr><tr><td><p> </p></td><td><p>London</p></td><td><p>195</p></td></tr><tr><td><p> </p></td><td><p>Merseyside &amp; Cheshire</p></td><td><p>36</p></td></tr><tr><td><p> </p></td><td><p>North East</p></td><td><p>72</p></td></tr><tr><td><p> </p></td><td><p>North West</p></td><td><p>121</p></td></tr><tr><td><p> </p></td><td><p>South East</p></td><td><p>50</p></td></tr><tr><td><p> </p></td><td><p>South West</p></td><td><p>41</p></td></tr><tr><td><p> </p></td><td><p>Thames &amp; Chiltern</p></td><td><p>115</p></td></tr><tr><td><p> </p></td><td><p>Wales / Cymru</p></td><td><p>65</p></td></tr><tr><td><p> </p></td><td><p>Wessex</p></td><td><p>28</p></td></tr><tr><td><p> </p></td><td><p>West Midlands</p></td><td><p>55</p></td></tr><tr><td><p> </p></td><td><p>Yorkshire &amp; Humberside</p></td><td><p>108</p></td></tr><tr><td><p> </p></td><td><p>POCU</p></td><td><p>7</p></td></tr><tr><td><p><strong>Grand Total</strong></p></td><td><p><strong> </strong></p></td><td><p><strong>1,447</strong></p></td></tr></tbody></table><p> </p><p> </p><p> </p><p> </p><p> </p>
