PCC commissioned service recognised as best practice for tackling stalking
The Police and Crime Commissioner's commissioning of the You First Stalking Clinic has been identified as best practice in a report by the Suzy Lamplugh Trust.
The Suzy Lamplugh Trust published a report, Out of Sight, Out of Mind: Two Years On, on the local response to stalking and harassment. It highlighted Dorset Police and Crime Commissioner as an example of best practice for commissioning a specialist service for victims of stalking.
The Police and Crime Commissioner funded the You First Stalking Clinic to deliver a coordinated response to stalking across Dorset by working with police, probation, mental health and other services.
Figures also show Dorset Police as well above average in thier group for the number of recorded cases. This indicates good awareness and accurate crime recording for these types of crimes in Dorset.
