This January is the 14th observation of National Stalking Awareness Month (NSAM). Started in 2004 by the National Center for Victims of Crime, NSAM was developed to increase awareness of the crime of stalking. According to the Bureau of Justice Statistics, 7.5 million people are stalked in one year in the United States. The legal definition of stalking varies from state to state, but the common working definition is a course of conduct directed at a specific person that would cause a reasonable person to feel fear.
