The MPS Central Public Protection Team is linked closely to the National NPCC lead for Stalking and Harassment, ACC Garry Shewan from Greater Manchester Police. Every police force in England and Wales has dedicated Stalking SPOCs and, when necessary, ACC Shewan's office would be the conduit to link in with other force leads.

Recently they have been working with Bedfordshire and Cambridgeshire police to develop a risk assessment for online cyber stalking.
