Stalking on Campus: Ensuring Security with Rights and Liberties
Campbell, Julie; Longo, Peter J.
College Student Journal, v44 n2 p309-324 Jun 2010
College campuses are often perceived as idyllic communities. While there is much truth in such perceptions, not surprisingly there are many complicated issues on college campuses. Stalking is one such problem that seems to persist and thrive in the cloistered college setting. Campus safety efforts must temper security practices with civil rights and liberties of individual students. This paper will establish the dimensions of the college campus stalking problem, analyze law enforcement practices aimed to diminish stalking, evaluate directive court cases, and offer a framework in which security issues can and should be balanced with constitutional considerations.
