10 d celebrity stalking

  1. 1. Celebrity StalkingBy Dr. Mark D. YatesTaken from the syllabus of the LawEnforcement &BodyguardAssociation International LEBAI
  2. 2. Stalking  Stalking is a very in-depth and complex subject, my aim is to give you as much of an insight in to it as possible.  After studying the different aspects of this lesson I know it will enable you to present yourself to potential clients armed with the relevant expertise and knowledge to undertake Protective services relating to Stalking and Threat Assessments. © 2013 drmarkdyates@aol.com
  3. 3. Stalking  Stalking and Threat Assessments are the two major growth areas within the VIP Protection and Security industries.  I am convinced that once you fully understand this in-depth subject you will quickly realise that in the European arena it is virtually an untapped market.  No-body will be better placed that a professionally trained EPO to take on such a unique opportunity. © 2013 drmarkdyates@aol.com 3
  4. 4. Why the lesson in Celebrity VIP Stalking As an Executive VIP Protection officer you need to have a real understanding of all potential threats to your client. Remember this has been described as “the newest most fashionable crime.” As an EPO you are likely to be the front line operative who is tasked with dealing and managing the crime of Stalking. © 2013 drmarkdyates@aol.com 4
  5. 5. Why the lesson in Celebrity VIP Stalking It will also add another specialist subject to your Curriculum Vitae, which in turn opens up many new doors for you as an EPO. Also because it has only just been designated as a crime in the UK. This means that all of the knowledge within this lesson is brand new State of the Art so to speak. © 2013 drmarkdyates@aol.com 5
  6. 6. Why the lesson in Celebrity VIP Stalking This means that if you require any up to date or ‘Mission Specific’ information on Stalking, Harassment and Threat Assessment you have to physically travel over to the USA and train with one of only three or four of the more specialised Law Enforcement Agencies. One of the greatest authorities in the world on Stalking runs his own company in the USA. This person reputedly charges his clients approx. £220 per hour!!! © 2013 drmarkdyates@aol.com 6
  7. 7. What is Stalking? © 2013 drmarkdyates@aol.com 7
  8. 8. What is Stalking? It may be motivated by an intense affection for, or an extreme dislike toward a person. Stalking usually takes the form of annoying, threatening or obscene telephone calls or letters. The calls or letters may start with one or two a day, but can quickly escalate. Stalkers will spy on their victims & follow every move they make. Victims homes may even be staked out. © 2013 drmarkdyates@aol.com 8
  9. 9. Who Can Be Stalked? It can happen to anyone. Stalkers don’t just target their victims, but also their victim’s families, friends and others who know them. Victims can be stalked for several days, weeks or even years. A statistically small but visible number of stalking victims are celebrities. © 2013 drmarkdyates@aol.com 9
  10. 10. Who can be Stalked? Amongst the most documented are John Lennon, Jodie Foster, Rebecca Shaffer & a many others. Based in L.A. a recognised expert on stalking who deals with celebrity cases, has a collection of over 300,000 letters or gifts given to stalking victims. These gifts range from half eaten chocolate bars to various body parts. © 2013 drmarkdyates@aol.com 10
  11. 11. Who Can Be Stalked? Victims can be casual acquaintances or random targets. Through constant harassment, stalkers have succeeded in making themselves the focal point of their victim’s lives. Victim’s lives can become a nightmare, with the victims often becoming virtual prisoners in their own homes. © 2013 drmarkdyates@aol.com 11
  12. 12. Who Can Be Stalked?  The majority of stalking takes place between people who have known each other intimately.  Domestic violence stalkers, as a category, constitute the most dangerous and potentially lethal group of stalkers.  These types of stalkers often delude themselves in to believing that their victims belong to them and are theirs to control. © 2013 drmarkdyates@aol.com 12
  13. 13. Who Can Be Stalked?  They may feel justified in punishing their victims if they try to escape.  These abusers often rationalise their inappropriate behaviour by blaming the victim.  Leaving an abusive relationship requires care in planning and execution.  Personnel at domestic violence shelters and victims assistance groups can be of tremendous help in working out the details. © 2013 drmarkdyates@aol.com 13
  14. 14. Who Can Be Stalked? If you or your client is a victim then remember that nobody deserves to be stalked or battered in any relationship. So whether victims may be stalked by former lovers, co- workers or strangers, they need to play it safe and protect themselves, their families, friends and co-workers. © 2013 drmarkdyates@aol.com 14
