Police in Lincolnshire are backing a week-long campaign targeting stalking which affects both women and men.

National Stalking Awareness Week has the theme, Is it Stalking? to promote understanding of the crime.

Detective Superintendent Rick Hatton, head of public protection for Lincolnshire Police, said: “Stalking can take many forms and the impact of it on victims, families and communities can be devastating.

“With one in six women and one in 12 men being stalked at some point in their lives, Lincolnshire Police is urging people to report what is happening.”
