Pursuant to 18-6-800.3 of the Colorado Revised Statutes, "Domestic violence" means an act or threatened act of violence upon a person with whom the actor is or has been involved in an intimate relationship (e.g., married, boyfriend and girlfriend, intimate partner, etc.). "Domestic violence" also includes any other crime against a person or against property when used as a method of coercion, control, punishment, intimidation, or revenge directed against a person with whom the actor is or has been involved in an intimate relationship.
Unfortunately, the academic environment is not immune to domestic violence. In Colorado, when an officer determines that there is probable cause to believe that a crime or offense involving domestic violence- as defined in section 18-6-800.3 has been committed- (e.g., an argument results in injury, crime, or damage to property, or where violation of a valid restraining order is evident) the officer shall, without undue delay, arrest the person suspected of its commission and charge the person with the appropriate crime or offense.
The Colorado general assembly finds and declares that stalking is a serious problem in this state and nationwide, and it is a crime in the state of Colorado. Although stalking often involves persons who have had an intimate relationship with one another, it can also involve persons who have little or no past relationship. A stalker will often maintain strong, unshakable, and irrational emotional feelings for his or her victim, and may likewise believe that the victim either returns these feelings of affection or will do so if the stalker is persistent enough.
Stalking includes harassing and it entails great unpredictability and creates great stress and fear for the victim. Stalking involves severe intrusions on the victim's personal privacy and autonomy, with an immediate and long-lasting impact on quality of life as well as risks to security and safety of the victim and persons close to the victim, even in the absence of express threats of physical harm.
If you believe you are being stalked, let someone know and report the incident to the police. Don't discount the situation and your feelings. If a situation does not feel right, ask for help!
