Harassment & Stalking

Victim Protective Orders


If you are seeking a VPO due to harassment or stalking a police report listing you as the victim of one or both of these must be filed. We will need the police report number for the filing of your VPO. You will need to present a copy of the police report when you go to court.

Stalking
