Our Resources-for-Stalking-Victims provides up to date links to the most relevant organizations providing assistance for victims of stalking.
Stalking – typically defined as a course of conduct directed at a specific person that would cause a reasonable person to feel fear – is a criminal offense under the laws of all 50 states, the District of Columbia, and the federal government.
Although its prevalence is high, public awareness that stalking is a crime remains dangerously low. One in 12 women and one in 45 men will be stalked in their lifetime, for an average duration of almost two years. Seventy-six percent of female homicide victims were also stalked prior to their death, and more than half of these victims reported stalking to the police before being murdered by their stalkers.
