What is stalking?
Stalking is a series of actions that make you feel afraid or in danger. Stalking is serious, often violent, and can escalate over time. A stalker can be someone you know well or not at all. It is important to know the signs! A person stalking may:
- Repeatedly call, text or message you.
- Follow you and show up wherever you are.
- Send unwanted gifts or letters.
- Damage your home, car, or other property.
- Monitor your communication or computer use.
- Use tracking technology to monitor your whereabouts.
- Threaten to hurt you, your family, friends, or pets.
Stalking is a crime! You should seriously consider contacting the police.
