If she is in public , she can legally video you and the police can’t do anything about it. It could have been a first amendment auditor. They want you to call the police. Dont call the police unless you see something illegal. They have more important things to do .

File a restraining order on her lol

Call the police on her!!

It sounds like there is way more to the story than what you are saying. People don’t do that for no reason and if you were really worried you would have contacted authorities. So either your story is BS or you are leaving out important details and not the victim.

That is harassment. Also, filming and taking pictures of you without your permission is taboo. You could start taking pictures and videos of her.

File a complaint for harrassment & get a restraining order.
Also, bet prepared for her to not always be “nice”.

Start with calling the non emergent number for the police, that way they can go ahead and get something on record. Then, place cameras around your property. I think Ring is like $10/month. Anytime, you are about to pull up to your house start recording everything.

Everybody on here is going to suggest the police. Thats good to establish a paper trail, but in essence they actually do nothing. Guarantee you the people that disagree are wyt LOL anyways, cops wont really do anything until AFTER sh*t goes down. You’re gonna have to grow a backbone and put a stop to it. That paper trail will come in handy AFTER the fact.

Get a ring camera and like others have said create a paper trail of complaints. Then you gotta keep your head on swivel when it comes to her! Keep your camera up so it’s easy to record her next time she starts harassing you …. You’ll have enough proof in no time I’m sure. Also look into getting a dash cam (or 4 foreal foreal) to put in your car as well to cover all angles. She seems a little unhinged

When she is videoing you take out your phone and start recording her.

I’m not sure what state you live in but we had a problem with our neighbor doing that we called the cops and they told us there was nothing they could do as long as she was not on our property that if she came on our property doing it that we needed to catch her in a picture or on a camera recorded and then they can go over and say something to her

Okay so here’s what sucks is that it’s legal what she’s doing.

You can take videos or pictures anywhere outside except on private property (you live in an apartment complex so it’s not your property).

HOWEVER. I would still contact police just so there’s a paper trail and evidence that you’re getting scared. If she’s legitimately harassing you and doing this ALL THE TIME, I would try to get an OP or no contact order.

Most likely they can’t do anything because “all she’s doing is taking videos in places she’s legally allowed to take videos in.”

I would ask her what her fucking problem is. Next time pretend to fall and hit her phone out of her hands and make sure it’s on the pavement so it cracks.

Call the cops. For all you know she’s tracking your movement so she can learn it for a bad reason. Video her back :woman_shrugging:t2:

Taking videos and pictures is not illegal. The police won’t be able to do anything. If you’ve asked her to stop, you might be able to get her on harassment, but I’m just not sure how that’ll go.
If she trespasses on your property, then the police can do something.
I agree, It’s super creepy. I think a ring camera is a good idea. But I’m not sure there much you can do about her taking pictures and videos.

Cameras, video, picture of her, enroll in a self defense course

I’m honestly confused. Your neighbor followed while you were out (away from your residence) and started taking pictures and recording you? And she was taking pictures of your car at home?
Is this someone with whom you are aquatinted? You said she says nothing when you ask if there’s an issue. Did you approach and ask her specifically why she was taking pictures and recording you? Or did you ask her (more general) if there’s any issue? Did she respond and say “nothing” or did she not respond at all? Is she attempting to hide the fact that she’s taking pictures/recording you or is she doing it openly?
I don’t like when my loved ones take my picture or record me so I can definitely see why it would be off-putting. But I know their intent and I am having a little trouble understanding why your neighbor would not only take pictures of/record you but also follow you to do it when you leave your house.
If it was me, first I would probably want to be relatively sure she was actually taking pictures of/recording me and not doing something with her phone that made me THINK she was (thus the reason I asked if she was trying to hide it or was open about it). If I AM relatively sure that was the case I would approach her (non-confrontationally) and ask “why are you taking pictures of me?”
It seems very strange that someone who simply lives near you would follow you while you were applying for jobs just to record you without any reason at all.
I know the responses here are split between calling the police and not calling them and I don’t think there’s much (if anything) they can do. It’s very cringy but I don’t think illegal if she’s doing it in public and not peering through your windows (what she does with them might be a different story). At best, you said she’s coming on your property to do it- you might be able to call for her trespassing but even that might be a stretch. I’m not saying not to call (don’t call 911 unless it’s an actual emergency) but don’t expect much because if there’s no actual threat, I don’t think there’s much they can do. They MIGHT be able to advise you better

I think you are past the “just ignore her” stage.

You are going to need to find out who this woman is. See where she lives and so a search online of the property by address. You could check with her neighbors or her landlord, let them know what she is doing and ask if they have seen this behavior before.

You need to 1) start documenting these incidences by writing down dates and what she is doing on those dates, 2) take photos and video with sound of her doing what she is doing for use in getting a restraining order - identify the date verbally and state out loud that you want her to stop recording you and let her know you are recording her as some states require the person have knowledge of a recording before that recording is admissible, 3) call adult protective services to see if they can assist in getting her mental health treatment. 4). You should also call the local police department to put them on notice of this harassment and her trespass in order to find out what they can do about her trespassing and photo and video taking on your property. Let them know you have directed her to stop and also let them know you feel threatened and you feel that your life is in danger by her actions, but only relay these issues if this is how you feel. Ask the police or sheriff dept. if there are any prior reports filed against the woman. They might open up and let you know if she has done this to anyone else in the past. Ask if they will respond the next time this happens with the woman. Ask if they will go to her home and ask her to stop following you and recording g you. It may be enough for the police to respond and ask her to stop.

If you can afford it, get a couple of Ring cameras or other security cameras with sensor lights and have them installed. Save the recordings of the woman.

When you have collected your recordings and data and get that together, you can share that info with the police and see if they will take a report at that point, if they did not before. You can also read up online about how to file a straining order.

The woman may be a crank. She may be mentally ill. She may also be dangerous. She may vandalize your property, if you take action. I’d be really leery of the woman. You don’t know what you are dealing with. Be safe. Start carrying bear or pepper spray but don’t carry it into court, or govt buildings or into the police department. You can also get a whistle or a can of spray or a devise that makes a very loud noise.

My husband is retired Police and he says it is stalking and you should go to Police and tell them what she is doing and get an exparte order which is similar to a restraining order. If you can take some photos of her doing this it would be even better, Good Luck and be careful. I would carry pepper spray just in case . Could an ex have hired her to watch you and report back?

Legally she can take pictures of you while you are “in public”. She can’t take pictures through the windows of your home. Confront her and ask her stop. Inform her that if she doesn’t stop following you around then you will involve the police. It may be enough to scare her off, but otherwise she really isn’t breaking any laws. She’s just annoying you and that’s not illegal.

As far as we can tell by your post, she hasn’t done or said anything that would cause a reasonable person to fear for thir safety. She’s said nothing, hasn’t touched you etc. so you have no grounds for a restraining order.

. Take evidence of her coming on to the property and her following you around. Try to be ‘sneaky’ about it, don’t engage with her.
. Go to the Police with the evidence (also give the Police a heads up that if anything happens to you to look at neighbour and also where she lives and looks like)
. File for a restraining order.

This is really a creepy situation. I’m not sure what you can do unless she repeatedly comes onto your property. I would try to get pictures of her filming and photographing you while clearly standing on your property. That would be a clear case of trespassing… and probably harassment, you might make stalking stick. Getting documentation is the key here. She’s filming you… start filming her filming you. Then call the cops and show them your video of her filming you. I don’t know if they can do anything until she actually voices a threat of some kind… but it would be nice to have a paper trail about the problem in case your car gets vandalized or some other mess arises.

Is it private property you own or public property or private property? There is no expectation of privacy when in public.

Is this in canada? We went through something absolutely terrible a year go…harassment, stalking, screaming and yelling all of that and police said they cant do anything unless she threatened us…we had to get a lawyer involved and that barely helped

Seems just like she’s miserable.

Videotape her back and call the cops…

Pull out your phone and record her right back doing it :tipping_hand_woman: it will be a dose of her own medicine and exactly the proof you need to prosecute

Go to her car and start doing the same thing. When she comes out to say something to you, take a picture and video of her and walk away. See how much she likes it then call the cops. She’s taking your photo without your consent.

I’d get a restraining order and press charges if she is coming onto your property. Set up a camera for inside and outside ( ring is a good one ). Always carry whether that be a weapon or mase). In some areas she doesn’t need permission to record with audio… In some areas she does so look up the local laws for your area.

File a report on this weirdo.

Pretty sure call the police if you’re scared someone is stalking you was the right answer, not post on FB.

What went down the day it started something in you’re behaviour might of triggered her.?

For example in may I got death threats towards me and my children (police got involved due to the content in the messages but wouldn’t take things further due to lack of evidence) less than 2 weeks later there pool got slashed and a knife was left in there pool.

At the time wasn’t sure on who had done it but it’s come apparent that it’s kids on the street trying to wind us up.with there behaviour.
I’ve put cctv up along our front and back garden out of genuine fear that something is going to happen and it keeps setting my bpd off with the amount of anxiety I’m feeling around it or could be something as small as her finding something you have done and it’s making her own flight or flee behaviour off balance even more so if.she dosen’t really know you that well, don’t confront her head on as it could end badly just give each other some breathing space and log anything that takes place x

If she’s coming on your property or recording and it’s not an apartment complex I don’t know about that but I know for a fact that she can record from the public sidewalk and road but coming on your property is called trespassing if it’s the first amendment of the Constitution gives us the right to record from any public road or sidewalk where she’s coming right on your property and doing it that is violation of your privacy

Why would you post about it on a Facebook mom group and not call the cops? Y’all so weird I stg.

Either she’s totally bonkers or you’re not telling the entire story. When you know you’re being recorded try smiling and waving and talking to her in a friendly manner as you walk.
