Thames Valley Police back stalking awareness day

In aid of National Stalking Day Thames Valley Police will holding an online stalking information session today.

People are being invited for a Twitter Q&A with James Stubbs from Protecting Vulnerable People Strategy Unit via the Thames Valley account (@ThamesVP) as well as on their Facebook page.

The Q&A session will offer advice to people who are being stalked or who known someone who is being stalked as well as information about charities and helplines.

This comes in light of a new law which has seen stalking becoming a criminal offence under the Protection from Harassment Act 1997.

This year's theme for the awareness day is 'Know the Law, Use the Law.'

The police will also be backing various stalking help organisations to raise awareness of what is now an illegal act.

These are The National Stalking Helpline, The Network for Surviving Stalking and the Suzy Luamplug (ok) Trust as well as the Association of Chief Police Officers (ACPO).
