Stalking and cyberstalking are serious issues that impacts millions of people, and many victims and victim advocates are not aware of the resources that exist to help them. One such resource in Washington State is a Stalking Protection Order, which offers people legal protection from their stalker. We were honored to work with the King County Prosecutor’s Office and numerous experts to create www.stalkingpo.org.
The site provides a comprehensive, step by step explanation of the Stalking Protection Orders and the process of obtaining one. It also helps people identify stalking behavior, connect with local and online support services, and above all, ensure that they are staying safe and getting the help they need. This site has already become a go-to resource for law enforcement and members of the judiciary in Washington, and we hope it continues to provide hope and empowerment to victims of stalking all across the country.
