Ten percent of Americans – or 3.4 million people annually, according to the latest U.S. Department of Justice estimates – reported being stalked to law enforcement authorities at some time in their lives. However, approximately 80 percent of stalking incidents are NOT reported to law enforcement authorities. And the increasing availability of internet access has hastened a new form of online harassment, identified as “cyberstalking.” The latest Justice Department study, released in January 2009, estimates that more than one in four stalker victims reported that some form of cyberstalking was used to harass them.
