Stalking is a prevalent, dangerous, and often misunderstood crime. This presentation explores the dynamics of stalking, focusing on the highly contextual nature of the crime by discussing common tactics used by perpetrators, stalking’s co-occurrence with domestic and sexual violence as well as tools to plan for victim safety and hold offenders accountable. Keeping victims safe and holding offenders accountable requires that diverse professionals – including (but not limited to) victim advocates, law enforcement, prosecutors, educators, and others – view their work through a “stalking lens,” take pro-active steps to incorporate a stalking response into their roles and work together. This session will also provide practical strategies for building stalking into a coordinated community response (CCR).
