The History of National Stalking Awareness Month


In January 2004, the National Center for Victims of Crime launcNSAM10_Button5_hireshed National Stalking Awareness Month (NSAM) to increase the public’s understanding of the crime of stalking. NSAM emerged from the work of the Stalking Resource Center, a National Center program funded by the Office on Violence Against Women, U.S. Department of Justice, to raise awareness about stalking and help develop and implement multidisciplinary responses to the crime.

NSAM began in response to a 2003 call to the Stalking Resource Center from Debbie Riddle, the sister of murdered stalking victim Peggy Klinke. Riddle wanted to transform her family’s painful tragedy into a force for good—and to help improve law enforcement’s response to stalking and save lives. Riddle’s call all led to a concurrent Congressional resolution on stalking; a national program on Lifetime Television, hosted by Erin Brockovich, featuring Peggy Klinke’s story; and a Lifetime video, “Stalking: Real Fear, Real Crime,” to train law enforcement about the crime. In July 2003, the National Center for Victims of Crime, in partnership with Representative Heather Wilson (R-NM) and Lifetime Television, told Peggy’s story at a Congressional briefing on Capitol Hill, which focused on strengthening law enforcement’s response to the crime.

That same day, Representative Wilson introduced a Congressional resolution to support National Stalking Awareness Month. The following January, the National Center for Victims of Crime launched the first observance of National Stalking Awareness Month and supported communities across the nation in planning the event.

In 2011, the White House issued the first Presidential Proclamation on National Stalking Awareness Month. President Obama’s proclamation stressed the millions affected by the crime, its often devastating consequences, the difficulty of identifying and investigating the crime, and the federal government’s strong commitment to combating stalking.

The 2012 proclamation elaborated on the dangers of stalking, and the importance of NSAM in building awareness about the crime. In 2012, during National Stalking Awareness Month, the White House convened its first-ever National Roundtable on Stalking, bringing together survivors, law enforcement officers, victim advocates, and researchers, to advance knowledge of the crime and help the federal government combat the crime.

The National Stalking Awareness Month website (www.stalkingawrenessmonth.org), launched in January 2009, provides a wealth of information about the crime and about the nationwide observance. Information about NSAM is also available on Facebook (https://www.facebook.com/ StalkingResourceCenter) and Twitter (https://twitter.com/SRC_NCVC). Both sites have generated great interest and sharing about how communities throughout the country observe NSAM.

  • If someone knocks on the door that you were not expecting or are not comfortable stalkers10n-1-webtalking to, do not answer the door. Make sure they know you are still home and that it is not an empty house, so they don’t break in, however, tell them to leave and that if they don’t, you will call the police. There are lots of products on the market to allow you to see who is there, without opening your door, including fish-eye peepholes, to cameras.

Don’t Stick Your Hand Way Out When Firing


Q: What is important not to do when using pepper spray in self-defense?

You’ve probably seen those images of people preparing to shoot their assailant with Pepper-Spray-for-Security-of-Womenpepper spray, and sticking their armed hand way out front. With their index finger on the trigger ready to let them have a dose of their defense.

This is the wrong technique for holding pepper spray! Never Ever thrust your shooting hand out in front of you towards the assailant. He or she may react quickly and hit your hand aside or grab your pepper spray.! Never use your index finger to fire, as the thumb is the weakest part of the hand.  Wrap your fingers around the cannister, and use your thumb to fire. This also makes it hard for your assailant try to take your pepper spray.  As you shoot, back up and continue backing up away from the assailant. This gives you a little more time and draws the assailant into the pepper spray.

Also use your unarmed hand as a block, to help prevent your pepper spray from being taken.

In our Free E-Book, we can show you how to properly hold and file your pepper spray, and many other things.
