Manchester stalking and harassment cases rise through the pandemic.
Manchester stalking and harassment, are you or have you been subject to this type intimidation?
Nationally in 2019 there were 27,156 stalking cases recorded by the Police. The COVID-19 Pandemic has seen a massive increase in recorded cases which in 2020 was in excess of 80,000 and this is believed to have increased further during 2021.
So Why Have Reported Stalking and Harassment Cases Risen?
One theory is that individuals have had more time on their hands during the Coronavirus Pandemic whilst being furloughed or working from home.
Another theory would be that the Pandemic has caused mental distress for many and caused them to act irrationally and out of character.
Personally, we believe austerity has played a massive part in the increase. Many Police forces just don’t have the ability to attend or take positive action. Many forces have adopted the decision not to issue warnings to nip stalking and harassment cases in the bud.
We were the victim of blackmail and harassment offences from an individual earlier in the year. These crimes were reported to the Police with named offenders and there the police investigation ended. It was crimed as two separate offences but no further action was taken. This then ensued into civil action which is expensive and still ongoing, however is looking likely to end in court action.
