Stalking : legislative, policing and prosecution patterns in Australia

  • Law


This report aims to fill the void in stalking research by focusing on anti stalking legislation introduced in Australia in the mid 1990s and on subsequent trends in reporting and prosecuting stalking. After considering definitions, case studies and current explanations of stalking, including the characteristics of stalking offenders and victims, the characteristics of stalking motivations and behaviours, and the consequences of stalking for victims, the report examines the Australian anti stalking legislative framework, police statistics on reported stalking cases and clearance rates, and court outcomes in stalking cases.
