The crime of stalking is a serious problem both in Tennessee and across the United States. Fifteen percent of women and six percent of men have experienced stalking, with new victims often between the ages of 11 and 17. Social media has enabled people who stalk others via the internet many more ways to contact and harass their victims. Tennessee's stalking law has not kept pace with the evolution of more advanced stalking methods that are now available through new technology.
Our legislation modernizes the current stalking law to ensure that all technological methods of stalking are clearly included. This update is essential to keep victims of this crime safe even as new technology continues to develop.
