The PCC has approved the HMICFRS to carry out an inspection into the force handling of stalking and harassment reports.

The victims of stalking and harassment are some of the most vulnerable victims in Sussex and it is right that they should receive the best possible service; from the point of reporting the offence, through to the investigation and conclusion of the case.

Recent findings across a number of activities have indicated that there remains room for improvement in Sussex Police’s response to stalking and harassment.

There is recognition that Sussex Police operates on a continuous improvement model and findings from previous inspections will already have driven improvements in practice. However, we need to understand the effectiveness of these practice changes and identify why more improvements can be made.
