Stalking

Are you getting repeated, unwanted and harassing attention?

Nationally, 7.5 million people are stalked every year.

Approximately 1 in 6 women and 1 in 19 men have experienced stalking at some point in their lifetime.

  • Stalking can happen to anyone
  • If it happens to you, we are here to help

Signs of Abuse

Most stalking is done by someone known to the victim, such as a current or former partner. Yet some victims are stalked by complete strangers.

Stalking can include a wide array of behaviors. Here are some signs of stalking.

  • Does someone always seem to be just around the corner when you are going to work, are out with friends, or in your neighborhood?
  • Does someone  keep making unwanted phone calls to your home or work?
  • Do you find signs that someone has been in or near your home, your car, or your workplace when you were not there?
  • Are you receiving repeated letters, gifts, cards, social media posts and/or emails even though you told the sender to stop sending them?
  • Has someone tried to get information about you from a third person like a family member, friend, or co-worker?
  • Is someone posting information or spreading rumors about you on the internet, in a public place, or by word of mouth?
