Director Rachel Horman has recently delivered training to two high profile police events. The first event was delivering training on behalf of Paladin the National Stalking Advocacy Service to a conference of specialist Stalking Points of Contact within police forces and CPS divisions within the North of England to ensure that they were promoting and offering best practice with regard to allegations of stalking in their area. A recent study demonstrated that only 1% of cases of stalking reported to the police resulted in prosecutions which is clearly something which needs improving urgently. Rachel commented “Training those working within the Criminal Justice System is always something I enjoy as it can make a huge impact to victims who will hopefully be given a better service as a result of the training”.
Rachel also celebrated White Ribbon Day by delivering the keynote speech at the Greater Manchester Police Domestic Abuse Conference. White Ribbon day is an International Campaign to challenge and reduce male violence against women where men are asked to make a pledge against domestic abuse and wear a white ribbon in support. Rachel spoke about the new laws around Coercive Control and Emotional Abuse which are due to come into force later in the year and her involvement in the successful campaign to change the law.
