National Stalking Awareness Month

Posted:

January is National Stalking Awareness Month.

Every year, 6.6 Million people are stalked in the United States according to the National Center for Victims of Crime.

The North Dakota Safety Council is offering Self Protection and Predator Awareness courses in Bismarck and Watford City.

Participants will learn how to recognize, avoid, and handle stalkers.

Plus, they receive hands-on training to learn escape techniques.

Lynae Hanson took the course with her daughter before she went to college.

"I just wanted to make sure that she had the ability to protect herself when she's off at college and not in our house anymore and so we took it together and basically we learned a lot about who predators are, where they're hanging out, what to watch for, and some things that you can do to avoid being attacked or pulled away by somebody," says Lynae Hanson, Assistant Exec. Director, NDSC.

Don Moseman, Director of the safety council, says he had a 76-year-old woman and her family attend.
