The term “intimate partner violence” describes physical violence, sexual violence, stalking, or psychological harm by a current or former partner or spouse. This type of violence can occur among heterosexual or same-sex couples and does not require sexual intimacy.
Stalking occurs when someone repeatedly harasses or threatens someone else, causing fear or safety concerns. Stalking tactics can include:
making unwanted phone calls
sending unwanted emails, instant messages, text messages, voice messages, or social media messages
approaching a victim or showing up unwanted, such as at the victim’s home, workplace, or school
leaving strange or potentially threatening items for the victim to find
watching, following, or tracking a victim
sneaking into the victim’s home or car and doing things to scare the victim or let them know the perpetrator had been there
Technology has made communicating with others easier than ever, but those advances have also created more options and choices to threaten and harass victims. Most victims are commonly stalked by someone they know, such as an intimate partner or acquaintance.
Human trafficking is a form of modern-day slavery. This crime occurs when a trafficker uses force, fraud or coercion to control another person for the purpose of engaging in commercial sex acts or soliciting labor or services against his/her will. Force, fraud, or coercion need not be present if the individual engaging in commercial sex is under 18 years of age.
On January 19 expert panelists informed attendees on the behaviors and prevention of intimate partner violence and stalking and provided resources for victims and service providers.
