Stalking: Know It, Name It, Stop It!

 

A stalker can be someone you know well or not at all. Most stalkers have dated or been involved with the people they stalk.

Most stalking cases involve men stalking women, but there are also cases of men stalking men, women stalking women,
and women stalking men.

¨     2/3 of stalkers pursue their victims at least once per week, many daily, using more than one method.

¨     78% of stalkers use more than one means of approach.

¨     Weapons are used to harm or threaten victims in 1 out of 5 cases.

¨     Almost 1/3 of stalkers have stalked before.

¨     Intimate partner stalkers frequently approach their targets, and their behaviors escalate quickly.

 

Social Media and other internet use make stalking more invisible to bystanders, and is one of the most prevalent means of stalking.

 

If you are being stalked and need assistance please contact us. We can provide resources and information for you, confidentially and free of charge.
