Hello,

I am afraid yes, these facts are in the public domain and as such the investigator is not doing anything wrong by noting these details down.

However, if you know who this investigator is and you feel threatened by them whilst in public, you may report them to the police for harassment.

May I help further?

to be more explicit - he noted them down and then distributed to a significant number of email addresses. Does your answer still apply to ""emailing on""?

Is it possible to define what constitutes harassment e.g. phone calls ?

Thanks

Yes, it still applies for emailing on.

The offence may be that of stalking under the Protection from Harassment Act which includes following the victim, see here:
