In the UK, there is no existing framework to monitor serial stalkers and domestic violence perpetrators.
Police rely on victims to report such crimes, and connections to an offender’s history of prior incidents is often lost.
Anti-stalking charity Paladin is calling on the UK government to introduce a Stalkers Register to protect victims of domestic abuse and stalking. Under these proposals, serial stalkers and domestic abusers would be tracked, managed, and monitored by police. Police would also be obliged to identify people that they believe to be at risk of serious harm from them, such as a new partner, and warn that person of their history of offending.
160,286 people have signed the Stalkers Register petition in support.** number of signatures as of 23 November, 2018
