Sussex Police leading the way on Stalking Protection Orders
Police in Sussex have been leading the way in enforcing a new law aimed at helping victims of stalking.
Stalking Protection Orders (SPO’s) came into effect on 20 January and Sussex, which was the first force the country to obtain an order that day, has now secured 23 in the first six months, as an additional tool in responding to reports of stalking.
The response from victims has been positive. One has told the police;
"Getting an SPO has help me hugely to make sense of what is going on for me and has given me hope that the system will work, thank you to all those supporting me, a burden shared has certainly being a burden halved. It is really reassuring that something is in place that protects me and my family."
