DPSS FEATURE: Stalking Information
Stalking is a prevalent crime, including on university campuses...and most victims know their stalkers.
According to the Bureau of Justice Statistics, 46 percent of stalking victims experience at least one unwanted contact per week and nearly three in four victims know their offender. Stalking impacts 6.6-7.5 million people a year in the U.S., where 1 in 7 women and 1 in 18 men are targeted.
Some stalking behaviors include:
- repeated and unwanted contact by phone, text, or social media;
- following a person or showing up unexpectedly at locations; or
- leaving gifts for their target.
These types of behaviors are unacceptable and illegal; therefore they should be taken seriously and reported.
