Domestic Violence comes in many forms, and often times involves control tactics, stalking and harassment. Unfortunately there has been a rising number of cases of magnetic tracking devices being placed on the cars of victims by their abusers in order to track their locations. This dangerous and unwarranted behaviour can cause not only extreme distress for the victim, but real physical danger.
The Domestic Violence Survivors Project are calling on our Australian community and asking services providers who have the capability to check cars adequately for tracking devices to step forward and join us in helping those at risk. We are developing a database (searchable by postcode for DV victims) of service providers (mechanics, auto electricians etc) who are offering this service for free.
