star this property answer text <p>The Crown Prosecution Service (CPS) has developed two online e-Learning courses on all types of stalking. 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.</p><p> </p><p> </p><p> </p><p>The CPS maintains a central record of the number of employees who have been trained on the law on stalking by way of the e-Learning courses. 1581 of its employees in post on 23 October 2014 have completed all elements of either of the e-Learning courses in the period between 1 November 2012 (the month when the Cyber Stalking e-Learning module was revised to include the new stalking offences) and 23 October 2014.</p><p> </p><p> </p><p> </p><p>In October 2014 the CPS issued follow-up, face-to-face training material on the Stalking and Harassment offences. It can be used flexibly at a local CPS level; accordingly, its delivery is not recorded on a central database.</p><p> </p><p> </p><p> </p><p>Although there are no current plans for new training products to be launched, the CPS will continue to train its staff in this critical area of work.</p><p> </p>

star this property answer text <p>The Protection of Freedoms Act 2012 created two new offences of stalking by inserting new sections 2A and 4A into the Protection from Harassment Act 1997. The new offences, which are not retrospective, came into force on the 25<sup>th</sup> of November 2012 and provide further options for prosecutors to consider when selecting charges. Between the introduction of the new stalking offences on the 25<sup>th</sup> of November 2012 and the end of September 2014, Crown Prosecution Service (CPS) data for stalking offences charged by prosecutors shows a steady rise. It is not possible to determine with certainty the impact that the stalking offences have had on the number of other offences charged under the Protection from Harassment Act 1997.</p><p>Figures for the number of stalking and harassment charges that reached a first hearing at Magistrates’ Courts are set out in the table below:</p><p> </p><table><tbody><tr><td> </td><td> </td><td><p><strong>2011-2012</strong></p></td><td><p><strong>2012-2013</strong></p></td><td><p><strong>2013-2014</strong></p></td><td><p><strong>2014-2015</strong></p><p><strong> (April - Sept 2014)</strong></p></td></tr><tr><td><p>Protection from Harassment Act 1997</p><p>{ 2(1) and (2) }</p></td><td><p>Harassment.</p></td><td><p>7,713</p></td><td><p>7,159</p></td><td><p>8,303</p></td><td><p>4,381</p></td></tr><tr><td><p>Protection from Harassment Act 1997</p><p>{ 4(1) and (4) }</p></td><td><p>Harassment involving</p><p>fear of violence.</p></td><td><p>1,632</p></td><td><p>1,398</p></td><td><p>1,489</p></td><td><p>859</p></td></tr><tr><td><p>Protection from Harassment Act 1997</p><p>{ 2A(1) and (4) }</p></td><td><p>Stalking with fear</p><p>/ alarm / distress.</p></td><td><p>0</p></td><td><p>72</p></td><td><p>529</p></td><td><p>319</p></td></tr><tr><td><p>Protection from Harassment Act 1997</p><p>{ 4A(1)(a)(b)(i) and (5) }</p></td><td><p>Stalking involving</p><p>fear of violence.</p></td><td><p>0</p></td><td><p>9</p></td><td><p>65</p></td><td><p>59</p></td></tr><tr><td><p>Protection from Harassment Act 1997</p><p>{ 4A(1)(a)(b)(ii) and (5) }</p></td><td><p>Stalking involving</p><p>serious alarm / distress.</p></td><td><p>0</p></td><td><p>10</p></td><td><p>149</p></td><td><p>122</p></td></tr><tr><td colspan="2"><p><strong>TOTAL HARASSMENT OFFENCES</strong></p></td><td><p><strong>9,345</strong></p></td><td><p><strong>8,648</strong></p></td><td><p><strong>10,535</strong></p></td><td><p><strong>5,740</strong></p></td></tr></tbody></table><p> </p><p>Data Source: CPS Case Management Information System</p><p><em>Notes:</em></p><p><em>1. </em><em>Whilst there is no strict legal definition of 'stalking', section 2A (3) of the </em><em> Protection from Harassment Act</em><em> 1997 sets out examples of acts or omissions which, in particular circumstances, are ones associated with stalking. These include: following, contacting, or attempting to contact a person by any means (this may be through friends, work colleagues, family or technology); or, other intrusions into the victim's privacy such as loitering in a particular place or watching or spying on a person. The effect of such</em><em> behaviour</em><em> is to curtail a victim's freedom, leaving them feeling that they constantly have to be watchful. In many cases, the conduct might appear innocent (if it were to be taken in isolation), but when carried out repeatedly so as to amount to a course of conduct, it may then cause significant alarm, harassment or distress to the victim.</em></p><p><em>2. </em><em>The table of data indicates the volume of offences charged in which a prosecution commenced at magistrates’ courts for offences of harassment. No information is held as to the number of individual defendants prosecuted, or details related to these individuals. It is often the case that an individual defendant is charged with more than one offence against the same victim.</em></p><p> </p>
