Stalking and Harassment Awareness Training
Stalking is a pernicious and dangerous form of violence that affects millions each year. It is not something to be taken lightly or dismissed as harmless admiration; stalking poses a severe threat to public safety that all organisations must acknowledge.
The obsessive and unwelcome nature of stalking behaviours often leads to the escalation of this crime over time, resulting in devastating consequences. Stalkers fixate on their targets, becoming consumed by their actions and crossing boundaries without consent. Their campaign of harassment and control erodes the target’s sense of safety and freedom.
Without timely intervention, stalking all too frequently turns fatal. Homicide becomes the ultimate risk when stalkers act on their compulsions. Organisations have a duty to recognise warning signs, treat reports seriously, and implement robust safety measures. Early identification and reporting of suspicious behaviour are crucial in disrupting fixations before they transform into entrenched obsessions.
Comprehensive training equips staff to identify risk factors and patterns of escalation. A considerate, trauma-informed response demonstrates to victims that they are heard and shields them from further harm. With lives at stake, organisations must prioritise employee and public safety against stalking threats. Knowledge and vigilance are our best defences against this disturbing crime.
