Tennessee Secretary of State Tre Hargett announced the launch of a new program to help protect victims of domestic violence in Tennessee.
Secretary Hargett said the Safe at Home Address Confidentiality Program that was sponsored by Sen. Kelsey and Rep. Farmer last year, made this program possible.
Safe at Home provides a substitute address to victims of specific domestic violence offenses to keep their personal address confidential and off certain government records. The program will start on Friday (March 1, 2019). "Safe at Home" has been implemented by more than 35 states across the country. The goal is to help survivors of domestic violence, rape, human trafficking, stalking and other crimes who have relocated or are about to relocate, in their effort to keep their abusers from finding them. In doing so, the program will allow victims to take back their lives by preventing an abuser from locating them through public records searches and inflicting additional harm.
The Safe at Home program officially begins on FRIDAY - March 1, 2019.
