Between 1998 through 2004 she was on the faculty of the United States Secret Service Threat Assessment Center in their training division. In 1994, she revised California’s Stalking Law Penal Code Section 646.9, so that law enforcement and the courts can now effectively protect victims from this crime; in 1997 she wrote Penal Code Section 646.92, which allows law enforcement to issue emergency restraining orders in stalking and workplace violence cases; and in 2000 she increased the penalties for aggravated stalking.

National Achievement Award; in 2001 was given the Woman of Distinction Award by Soroptimist International in recognition of her contributions to combating stalking and workplace violence; and in 2004 she received a recognition award from Mothers Against Drunk Driving (MADD) for her efforts in supporting victims of this crime. In November, 2005, Ms Saunders participated in a symposium at the invitation of the German government to establish a criminal stalking law in that country.
