Classifying Stalking Offenses for Clery Act Purposes

April 4, 2019   2pm - 3:15pm EST

Incidents of stalking are unlike any other offenses that must be included in the annual statistical disclosure, which makes them vulnerable to misclassification and underreporting.  They involve more than one act between the same perpetrator and the victim.  They have special rules for counting offenses by location.  Stalking activities can occur in both the on-line and off-line environments.   Furthermore, courses of conduct must provoke a specific response by the targeted individual, or a reasonable person in the target’s position.  There are even special considerations for counting courses of conduct that span multiple years.  This webinar will explore these issues and more as we aim to provide participants with guidance that will help to identify potential courses of conduct that should be classified as Stalking offenses for Clery Act purposes.
