On November 20, 2020, Governor Murphy signed Daniel’s Law (P.L. 2020, c.125) into law, which prohibits disclosure of the residential addresses of certain persons covered by the law (“Covered Persons”) on websites controlled by state, county, and local government agencies. The community of Covered Persons includes former, active, and retired judicial officers, prosecutors, and members of law enforcement and their immediate family members residing in the same household. The State of New Jersey’s Department of Community Affairs has established a Daniels Law Portal to streamline the implementation process.
STEP ONE: Register with NJ OIP
Covered Persons need to register with New Jersey’s Office of Information Privacy (https://www.nj.gov/dca/oip/) . Once your registration/status is confirmed by the State, our office will be notified to remove your personal information from our records. For complete text of Daniels Law, see P.L. 2021, CHAPTER 371.
