Annotation: This 15-minute video is designed to enhance awareness among professionals working with stalking victims of how stalkers use a vast array of technologies today.
Abstract: The video provides an overview of the most common forms of technology used by stalkers, victim testimony, and commentary from professions on considerations for working with victims. Stalkers often use technology – such as global positioning systems, computer spyware, and cell phones – to track their victims and evade the police. In this award-winning, 15-minute video designed to train law enforcement and educate communities, a stalking victim tells her story and experts describe how to work with victims of stalking. The video and discussion guide focus on stalking prevalence, technologies used by stalkers, communities’ approaches to the crime, and obstacles to addressing technology-assisted stalking. The short format of the training video makes it ideal for situations in which time for training is constrained, such as law enforcement roll-call trainings or victim advocate training.
