Stalking and Harassment

What is Stalking?

Stalking is repeated and persistent unwanted behaviour from another person that makes you feel scared or distressed.  

Stalking can happen to anyone and is where one person becomes fixated or obsessed with another with the stalker often using multiple and different methods to harass the victim. 

A stalker may not make threats towards you but as a victim of stalking you may feel scared. It is important to know that threats are not required for the criminal offence of stalking to be prosecuted.
