Law Enforcement



Law enforcement officers may encounter Safe at Home participants when performing routine traffic stops or when responding to an emergency call or incident. Survivors of domestic violence, stalking and sexual assault enroll in the Safe at Home program to protect their confidential address on court documents, restraining orders, police reports and with various state and local agencies. It is recommended that law enforcement officials contact the Safe at Home program at (916) 653-1769 to verify an individual's enrollment. The Secretary of State's office greatly appreciates the continued cooperation, sensitivity to victim needs, and ongoing information exchange we have with California's law enforcement agencies.
