Default Cyber stalking plus: assessing risk

A UK LE "lurker" has a request. According to academic behavioural psychology research there are 'trigger' offences in cyber stalking / bullying / harassment which lead to more serious crimes?

Working with UK academics in Behavioural Psychology the "lurker" seeks to identify potential systems that can be adapted to assess risk from such behaviour.

One option is to divert 'low level' offenders into mandatory social media training, akin to a road speed awareness course. Academics here argue 30% so engaged will not reoffend.

I expect online stalking etc is a LE problem in many places. Here it is known a small number of offences and suspects pose a risk of serious harm - amidst a deluge of such reports.
