180 Responds to Victims of Stalking

Definition: Stalking is a pattern of behavior that may cause fear or concern fear for the person who is the focus of the behavior.

Stalking is a crime that frequently predicts and co-occurs with physical and sexual violence. 180 Turning Lives Around can help guide you and give you the tools you need to respond to the crime of stalking. Stalkers use many tactics including: Approaching the victim or showing up in places when the victim didn’t want them to be there; making unwanted telephone calls;leaving the victim unwanted messages (text or voice); watching or following the victim from a distance, or spying on the victim with a listening device, camera, or GPS.

Common staking behaviors include:

  • Repeated calls, text messages, e-mails, or posts via social media
  • Following the victim or showing up where they are (e.g., near home, work, school, or other places the victim might frequent)
  • Using technology to track, find out and/or disseminate personal information about the victim
  • Threatening to hurt the victim and/or people they care about

Happy New Year! Put this date on your 2019 calendar!

With a nod to Anna’s Cuban roots, “HavANNA Nights” will be a party to remember! As we appreciate and recognize Anna’s 35 years of service to 180 Turning Lives Around, we reflect upon the many programs she has established and led for survivors of domestic violence and sexual assault. Her leadership has guided nearly every local service available for victims and their children. Using nationally proven models in the field of domestic violence and sexual assault, her work has impacted thousands of survivors in Monmouth County. She has garnered the support of a vast number of volunteers and donors, as well as her dedicated staff of counselors and social workers. Anna’s 35 years of saving and changing lives in Monmouth County gives us all the reason to celebrate her at our May 3, 2019 event! 
Please plan to join us in her honor and help 180 continue our work of empowering individuals affected by domestic violence to find the strength and courage to turn their life around.
