January is National Stalking Awareness Month

All stalkers can be dangerous. Intimate partner stalkers, compared to acquaintance and stranger stalkers, are more likely to threaten and physically assault the victim and their friends and family.

Stalking often co-occurs with intimate partner violence and can be an indicator of other forms of violence. Many abusers use stalking to intimidate and control their victims. Did you know stalking can include these behaviors?

  • Repeated phone calls, texts, or communication on your social media
  • Sending unwanted gifts to your home or work
  • Threatening you or your loved ones
  • Following you or watching you from a distance
  • Digital harassment, such as tracking your location through an app or showing up at a place you’ve checked into online

Stalking is illegal and survivors have rights.

January is #NationalStalkingAwarenessMonth. Learn more about the crime and ways to plan for your safety:
