In California, a special program was designed to guard the safety of peace officers and judges by keeping their addresses private to protect them from criminals.
The program has since expanded to include legislators, city council members, county supervisors, prison employees, trial court workers, parking officers, Child Protective Services social workers, national park rangers, other groups, and their spouses and children, and even after they are no longer public employees.
While private addresses are not immediately available from the Dept of Motor Vehicles for these people, unlike the rest of us, they could be; but law enforcement says it's not worth the effort to get the addresses.
A lawmaker is trying to undo this.
