Domestic Violence Expert Adresses 'Stalking and Counter-Stalking' at MTSU April 2

A 21-year veteran of the Metropolitan Nashville Police Department will share his expertise on the subject of stalking with the MTSU community.

Mark Wynn will deliver a presentation titled “Stalking and Counter-Stalking” at 6 p.m. Wednesday, April 2, in the State Farm Lecture Hall of MTSU’s Business and Aerospace Building.

Wynn will discuss the growing crime of stalking in domestic violence incidents and on college campuses. A video about Wynn’s life at www.wynnconsulting.com says he tried to kill his alcoholic stepfather at age 7 to save his mother from being beaten.

“Every time that I stand up and I speak against domestic violence, I’m standing up and speaking against him and what he did to us,” Wynn said in the video.

Wynn was appointed to the executive committee of Mayor Karl Dean’s Nashville-Davidson County Domestic Violence Safety and Accountability Assessment in 2013.

He received the Family Justice Center Lifetime Alliance Achievement Award in 2012 and the Visionary Award from End Violence International and the Distinguished Faculty Award from the National District Attorneys Association in 2011.

Wynn has served as a consultant to the National Stalking Resource Center of the National Center for Victims of Crime and to the Training and Technical Assistance Center of the U.S. Department of Justice’s Office of Victims of Crime.

He has appeared on numerous television programs, including “The Oprah Winfrey Show,” “Dateline NBC,” and “NBC Nightly News.”
