Introducing a new resource for stalking victims!

I dedicated funds from both police and prosecution VAWA STOP grants to develop and design a NEW WEBSITE intended for people in King County (and Washington State) who are being stalked by someone other than an intimate partner or family/household member.   It is now live -- here is the link:

This website was developed in response to the Jennifer Paulson Stalking Protection Order Act of 2013 (RCW 7.92) and to the growing number of non-DV stalking cases to function as an information and referral source to help address a gap in services in our region – victims of acquaintance or stranger stalking do not qualify for DV services and to date there are no specialized advocacy services in this area.  The website includes a comprehensive overview of stalking; safety considerations and suggestions; stalking protection order orientation, forms and filing steps; and resources.   King County VAWA STOP Grant funds were used to support this project (Grant #s 2014-WFAX-00xx and 2015-WFAX-0033).

While the website focuses on non-DV stalking, the information provided also pertains to victims of intimate partner stalking and can be a valuable resource for ALL people experiencing stalking.  In fact, we modeled this website after our DV Protection Order website and heavily refer to it throughout the new website as research tells us that more than half of stalking victims are stalked by a current or former intimate partner.

Our hope is that this website is also useful to professionals who interface with victims of stalking.  Please take a few minutes to check it out and circulate among your colleagues.  We hope you will routinely refer to it as you work with victims of stalking.  Feel free to link to it on your agency’s website.


Finally, thank you to the following people/groups for their time, effort and patience in helping me to develop the website:

Kim Wyatt – Sr. Prosecutor KCPAO/Seattle City Attorney’s Office and Certified Stalking Trainer
Kimberly McDaniel – advocate, Seattle City Attorney’s Office
Angela Rogness – advocate, Protection Order Advocacy Program, KCPAO
David Martin – DV Unit Chair, KCPAO

Please let me know if you have any comments or feedback about the website, and put it to good use!

Thank you,
