Stalking

Alert message sent 19/04/2021 12:49:00

Information sent on behalf of Cheshire Constabulary


We are supporting this week’s National Stalking Awareness Week 2021. The theme is #UnmaskingStalking, raising awareness around changes in stalking since the start of the pandemic.

100% of National Stalking Helpline cases since Covid-19 have cyber elements to them. Stalkers are relying on social media sites, spyware and hacking devices to contact and monitor their victims.

Stalking has been described as a crime of psychological terror. The impact on the victim can be devastating, with many experiencing hyper-vigilance, PTSD, self harm, anxiety, and depression.

If you are, or think you might be, a victim of stalking you can report to us directly or call the National Stalking Helpline on 0808 802 0300.
