The Safe at Home Address Confidentiality Program makes personal information, like addresses, private to protect victims of violence.

MEMPHIS, TN (WMC) - Victims of domestic violence, human trafficking and other sex-related rimes can now conceal their identities from public records in the state of Tennessee.

Secretary of State Tre Hargett has launched a new program called “Safe at Home.” It shields survivors and victims from ongoing threats of violence.

“What we’re trying to do is to create a system where there is one less point of vulnerability whether it’s stalking domestic violence, whatever it is to be able to protect their address so they don’t have to have that point of vulnerability,” said Hargett.

There has to be some type of conviction, litigation or a medical issue in order to qualify for this program.
