Police are failing to recognise offenders as stalkers and protect their victims, claim campaigners.

The National Stalking Consortium has brought a super-complaint – a mechanism for raising concerns about general trends in policing – saying only five per cent of cases in England and Wales end with a charge.

Victims are ‘let down at every step’, said consortium member the Suzy Lamplugh Trust. Campaigners claim officers fail to spot patterns of behaviour and do not use protection orders enough.

Claire Waxman, victims commissioner for London, endured a years-long stalking campaign by producer Elliot Fogel – and told the BBC his most recent sentence, of 16 months, is an ‘insult’.

‘Stalking behaviours are ignored or minimised, and breaches of restraining orders not taken seriously enough,’ Ms Waxman said.

‘Change is well overdue as stalking victims deserve to be protected.’

A watchdog will decide if the super-complaint is eligible for investigation. Dep Ch Con Paul Mills, of the National Police Chiefs’ Council, admitted: ‘There is more to do to improve outcomes for victims of stalking.’ Police said the number of cases recorded has risen amid better awareness.
