January is National Stalking Awareness Month

January 2019 marks the 15th annual National Stalking Awareness Month.

Stalking is prevalent, dangerous, and a crime in all 50 states, the U.S. Territories, and the District of Columbia. 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. There is a connection between stalking and intimate partner violence.
