Description: Though millions of people are stalked every year in the United States, the crime of stalking is often misunderstood, minimized, and/or ignored.
Stalking is a pattern of behavior directed at a specific person that causes fear. Many stalking victims experience being followed, approached and/or threatened – including through technology. Stalking is a terrifying and psychologically harmful crime in its own right, but it is also a predictor of potentially lethal violence: 1 in 5 stalkers use weapons to threaten or harm victims, and stalking triples the risk of intimate partner homicide.
