Stalking and harassment: An inspection of Sussex Police commissioned by the police and crime commissioner, and an update on national recommendations in HMICFRS’s 2017 report (9428)

Cause of concern We are concerned that Sussex Police does not use the power of entry and search effectively, and therefore stalking investigations are not as thorough as they could be.

Recommendation We recommend that within three months Sussex Police reminds officers of the need to consider the power of entry and search for stalking investigations, that the force dip-samples investigations to ensure that officers are considering this, and that the force introduces performance measures to find out if officers are using the powers effectively.
