A POLICE officer says she is suffering ongoing anxiety from a Bendigo sergeant accused of stalking her.
The officer, who was stationed as a Senior Constable in Bendigo, has relocated in a bid to distance herself from her former partner and colleague.
She told the Bendigo Magistrates Court on Monday the end of their two-year relationship in May last year signaled the start of a "concerning" series of visits to her home and attempts to contact her.
The sergeant, 42, has been charged with five beaches of an intervention order and two counts of stalking. He has pleaded not guilty to all charges.
The pair had been together since February 2010 and were due to marry in September 2012 before the wedding was called off in May last year.
The woman told the court her former partner failed to accept the relationship was over. She said the ordeal has caused her significant mental harm and anxiety.
The court heard the sergeant defied an intervention order by making repeated phone calls and sending her Facebook messages and emails through the internal police communications network.
In one alleged breach a letter titled "200 things I bring to the table" was left in the woman's front yard.
The list outlined reasons why she should reconsider their relationship, including because "I'm caring" and "I've learnt from my mistakes".
Number 200 stated "I know when enough is enough".
The woman said the letter sent alarm bells ringing.
"I went into shock."
"Knowing he had been to my premises, presumably overnight, was very unsettling for me."
She said she was "increasingly concerned" he would keep trying to contact her, despite the court orders and her insistence he stop.
The sergeant has been suspended without pay. He was arrested and charged in February this year after organising Valentines Day flowers to be sent to the woman's home.
The man's defence counsel Michael Cahill argued his client's behaviour did not constitute stalking. He said none of the communication directed toward the alleged victim had been threatening or violent.
The hearing continues.
