This week is National Stalking awareness week. The purpose is to raise awareness of this type of crime and make sure victims feel confident enough to report it.

Stalking is defined as unwanted or obsessive attention by an individual or group towards another person. Stalking behaviors are related to harassment and intimidation and may include following the victim in person or monitoring them.

Stalking can also follow or be a part of domestic violence particularly after parties separate. A victim may have suffered from domestic violence and ended a relationship but the perpetrator may continue to pursue contact with the victim. This behaviour can be intimidating and frightening. It also allows the perpetrator to still exercise a form of control over the victim.

Domestic violence is not always physical. It can be emotional or financial too. A victim could suffer stalking from a partner that they are in a relationship with if that person is following them, pestering them and monitoring every move that they make.
