Hi /law/
I need some help dealing with a private investigator, specifically what they by law have access to and what they can do with the information
And alternatively what charges I can press if they release my personal information to someone who could potentially put me in danger.

Long story short; I'm basically being stalked by someone with a long history of mental illness (paranoid schizophrenia). I've complied with 2 police investigations, proved I'm alive, sane and choosing to not contact this person for my own safety. The police have agreed to keep my information hidden from the person because of their state of mind.

This person now has hired a private investigator to find out my personal information and relay it back to them.
Now as far as I know, PI's can do what they want as they don't necessarily have to follow the same laws the police do.

Is there something I can threaten the PI with to make them back off? Can I press charges against them for passing my information to someone who's a hazard to me and mentally ill? I've tried contacting legal services, the police, social workers, etc... But no one can really help me until this person actually causes me harm.
Has anyone else been in this situation or know about laws concerning private investigating?
Thanks!
