Have you ever had a stalker?
Someone following you, or maybe unwanted visits or attention?
January is National Stalking Awareness Month.
Research says 3.4 million people are stalked each year in the United States.
The Washington County Sheriff's Office says stalking is any unwanted behavior from another person such as telephone, texting, messages or emails.
This can also apply to social media and online dating - a very big danger in today's world.
Major Brian Schuck says this month is to create awareness so the information is out there and available if someone feels they are a victim.
The office only has one reported case of stalking last year in Washington County.
Schuck says to tell someone you trust as well as calling your local law enforcement.
