Criminal Harassment

Threatening or harassing you or someone you know can be a criminal offence. Another word used for this type of crime is stalking.  Criminal harassment is when someone makes you fear for your or a family member’s safety by:

  • Repeatedly following you or someone you know
  • Repeatedly communicating with you or someone you know
  • Continuously waiting for you outside your home, work or other place
  • Engaging in threatening behaviour against you or someone in your family
