Being stalked can have terrifying consequences, and the Government is determined to do everything it can to protect victims and stop perpetrators at the earliest opportunity.

The Home Office collects information on the number of offences of stalking recorded by the police in England and Wales. It is not possible to tell from data held centrally whether or not incidents were initially dismissed by police.
