The Use of Technology to Stalk Online Course is a new resource produced by the Stalking Resource Center of the National Center for Victims of Crime with funding from the Office for Victims of Crime at the U.S. Department of Justice. The purpose of this self-paced, interactive online training is to increase the ability of criminal justice professionals and victim service providers to recognize how stalkers use technology and, ultimately, enhance their ability to work with victims of stalking. The course begins with an introduction to the concept of stalking and then moves on to share how technology is used to stalk. Each technology module includes information on documenting evidence and investigation and considerations for victim safety. The course concludes with a discussion on how stalking affects victims and resources for additional information and assistance. Visit www .tech2stalk.com for more information and to register.

��� The Use of Technology to Stalk training video and discussion guide is another free resource produced by the Stalking Resource Center of the National Center for Victims of Crime with funding from the U.S. Department of Justice Office for Victims of Crime. This 15-minute video is designed to enhance awareness among professionals working with stalking victims and offenders of how stalkers use a vast array of technologies today. The video provides an overview of the most common forms of technology used by stalkers, victim testimony, and commentary from professionals on considerations for working with victims. The short format of the training video makes it ideal for situations in which time for training is short, such as law enforcement roll-call trainings or victim advocate training.

Educating Children to be Safe…

I have ran across this article about an author’s book to help educating children to be safe. What do you think?Friend Manual: A Voice for Children

Do you believe that this is an effective way to communicate to your children how to be safe? Is it too much information, too little, or just right?

Would you include more?

Would you create a law that requires more education to be done with our children, and at what age would you make that law for? At birth on up? 1 and up? 2 and up? 3 and up? 4 and up? 5 and up? etc.

Do you know at what ages your children are taught about safety in your schools?

What age have you taught your children how to be safe and/or what to do when danger is present?

Would love your insights, opinions, and more. :) )

STALKING IS A CRIME!

“He Was Really Scary…I Had a Stalker”

Thanks, Anny, for sharing that survivor story and the well-written article. Unfortunately, too many folks go through similar stalking situations and, like domestic violence, knows no special age, race, education, etc. boundaries. It can happen to anyone indeed. Love your suggestions of what to do if you find yourself in that situation.
