he works for the council and been using this 'expertise' against us. filming my children and I, provoking, to obtain 'evidence'. Like I said a pretty intense experience.
He allowed work personnel into our garden without permission. I contacted the police about these people in our garden without permission. They did not need to be on our property either. Police would not attend, despite me informing them of how vulnerable a family we were and the intimidation in our garden by these men and the neighbour. I think the police service, completely unaware and ignorant regarding autism.
not only does her work for the council himself, he is using this 'power' against us. For example sound recording equipment for 10 days to record the family. Very intimidating.
You really wouldn't have thought it was legal for him to film you or record you and your family- I would have liked to think this is an illegal breach of your privacy, not to mention a safeguarding concern if he is filming young and vulnerable kids and that the police would see his behaviour as illegal too...but...obviously not?
I think I would try to move, out of whole area, for a fresh start; I think I would rather sleep on the sofa every night, in a tiny house, and let the kids bunk up and share rooms if needs be, rather than have to live with what you and your family are going through.
Better to be cramped and happy than have an adequate sized house and be persecuted?
no, no safeguarding at all. You are right.
To akidonicki (If I spelt that right),A couple points:
I myself actually have the EXACT same problem. Very very often. I also can't do anything about it. (Coincidentally, As I write this, it is happening. Again.) There are things which you may try to do about it, which I cannot in my own situation. For instance, I can't move away from where I live due to lack of money.
Build a solid gate/fence, to block it out, or pay someone else to do this; for there are *few* restrictions upon how high anyone is allowed to build a gate or a fence.
Keep a diary about it, as precise as you can - what, when, where, who, how long, effects, and such. This is for the LAW, to present a case if you can. In law, this is called "Light Pollution", and the business is similar to "Noise Pollution", and is treated with as much respect by the law... which I cannot comment upon... (Some other things which you state may count as "Stalking"'.)
I have taken many photographs much like yours, and so I know what you mean there. Stand in place, and take one photo with the "flash" ON, and then another with the flash off... and if you can, try to take some in daylight when the light is still on, or get any close-ups showing the exact light fixture (to show that it is pointed at your property)... something like that... which relates to this last suggestion...
Buy yourself a bright light and do the same to them...?? (Make certain that it shines upon no-one else at all.) Find out how *they* themselves next deal with it - in LAW - ...and then state your own case. Whatever you do, please tell us what happens - but also please do not do anything in haste (bad), if you know what I mean.
