A staggering 6.6 million people are stalked every year in the U.S. alone. 1 in 4 women and 1 in 13 men report being a victim of stalking at least once in their lifetime and have felt mild to severe fear as a result of their experience.
According to The National Center for Victims of Crime, a general definition of stalking is “a course of conduct directed at a specific person that would cause a reasonable person to feel fear”.
Stalking is a criminal offense. If you are a victim, you have the right to pursue legal action against the person you suspect to be stalking you. However, you can only take this step after the stalker has committed acts against you that have made you feel fear. By this time, it may be too late.
The Police have an obligation to act upon your complaint. What you're going to have to do is contact the Police to report your situation. You may have already done this, to which they advised that you file a restraining or protective order with the court. However, the Police may have also told you that they are unable to do anything to stop your stalker, unless you are physically assaulted. That is simply not good enough, and that is why you contract a Professional from the private sector who has your safety as a top priority.
As soon as you suspect you've become a victim of stalking, the first thing you have to do is protect yourself, because you cannot predict what your stalker will do in the future.
I understand how terrifying it is to be the target of a stalker, but you do not have to be a victim. If you are the subject of interest/obsession to a stalker, the first step I would take is to initiate a thorough background investigation on the stalker to determine if they have a criminal record or a prior restraining order from another stalking victim, next a surveillance of your stalker will be performed. This allows me to compile information about them and gather evidence on your behalf that may be used should you pursue legal or law enforcement action. Watching every move of your stalker lets me know where they are, and if they are within your general location so that appropriate measures to protect you are implemented. Your protection will not be intrusive, so that you may continue living in a normal manner.
You should never be afraid to live your Life to the fullest. If you feel or know that you are being stalked and harassed, please contact me immediately
