Stalking is defined as ‘a pattern of fixated and obsessive behaviour which is repeated, persistent, intrusive and causes fear of violence or engenders alarm and distress in the victim’ (Suzy Lamplugh Trust, 2016).
The project works collaboratively alongside Hampshire Constabulary, Hampshire & IOW Probation Teams, and Aurora New Dawn (victim advocacy) as part of a Multi-Agency Stalking Intervention Programme (MASIP).
The MASIP is an 18 month pilot, running until 1 March 2020, in which three areas (Hampshire, Cheshire & London) look to form multi-agency partnerships to test out intervention programmes for stalking perpetrators, with the aim of reducing reoffending. These pilots are co-ordinated by the Suzy Lamplugh Trust.
The project consists of a Consultant Forensic Psychiatrist, a Clinical Psychologist, a Forensic Psychologist, an Occupational Therapist and a Team Administrator.
