Abstract: In 2004, the U.S. Department of Justice agencies’ Office on Violence Against Women and the Bureau of Justice Statistics partnered in the development of a “stalking supplement” to the National Crime Victimization Survey (NCVS). The survey was named the Supplemental Victimization Survey (SVS) and uncovered information on the types of incidents perpetrated by stalkers, how stalking impacted the life of a victim, the measures the victim took to protect him/herself, how the criminal justice system responded to the stalking victim, the financial cost of stalking to the victim, the kinds of technology used by offenders to stalk their victims, and other crimes committed during stalking incidents. The baseline results of the SVS will yield important data for future research and study on stalking and help expand the knowledge on the frequency of stalking and how it affects victims. In addition to the development of the SVS, the National Center for Victims of Crime’s Stalking Resource Center (SRC) has provided extensive training and outreach services to law enforcement, prosecutors, victim advocates, judges, and others. In 2006, the SRC trained nearly 3,800 individuals at over 80 workshops, conferences, and trainings covering topics, such as charging a stalking case, the connection between stalking and sexual assault, and the use of technology in intimate partner stalking. In addition, the SRC Web site (www.ncvc.org/src) is a popular resource for practitioners seeking information on stalking, averaging 52,043 page views per month by nearly 31,448 users in 2006.
