Harassment may be hate mail, phone calls, texts, emails, graffiti, repeated name calling, following, pestering or repeated theft or damage to property. Though physical violence often has devastating effects on people, harassment can be very damaging to the victim too as they feel constantly unsafe. Always keep all evidence of harassment, such as recordings of phone calls, notes or letters (which could also contain fingerprint or saliva evidence) and keep a record of incidents and when they occurred. Harassment may take place in your home, your local neighbourhood, your place of work, school, or college. You can find out more about your options if you are experiencing harassment by reading the section on Harassment. You can also call our Shoutline to talk about your options.
