What is stalking?
Stalking is defined in different ways in different legal jurisdictions but is commonly recognised as a course of conduct that causes another person fear or alarm, where the stalker intended, or should have known, that their conduct would cause fear or alarm.
Stalking is also recognised by behaviours that conform to the FOUR mnemonic: fixated obsessive, unwanted and repeated.
The impact of stalking
Stalking has a devastating impact on victims. That can be the main goal of a stalker. Other offenders aren't interested in the feelings of the person being targeted and are only focused on their own motivations.
Popular culture can trivialise the seriousness of stalking and its physical, psychological and financial impact. This leaves victims isolated, struggling to have their experiences understood.
