Safe at Home is Wisconsin’s address confidentiality program for victims of abuse and those who fear for their physical safety. Established in 2017, Safe at Home provides legal address protection for participants’ home, work, or school addresses in both public and private records. Keeping the address of a home owned by a Safe at Home participant confidential can be extremely challenging.
Safe at Home is governed by Wis. Stat. § 165.68, which may be found at https://docs.legis.wisconsin.gov/statutes/statutes/165/68.
Erin Welsh, Safe at Home Director, Wisconsin Department of Justice will be presenting DOJ Safe at Home Program at the WLIA Fall Regional Meeting at Stone Harbor Resort in Sturgeon Bay, WI, on Thursday, October 11th.
This presentation will cover an overview of the program; obligations for both participants and public entities when it comes to property records; and a discussion of alternative options for keeping property information from being disclosed. Erin will share how the Safe at Home program works in Wisconsin and how participation will affect the ability to share land information.
