Lawmaker has idea to protect public health workers who have become political targets

9NEWS: There is a certain population in Colorado that has the state’s permission to not be found.

Survivors of domestic violence, sexual assault or stalking are allowed to have their public records kept private through the Address Confidentiality Program.

Through the end of 2020, there were 4,096 people signed up for that program, according to the Colorado Department of Personnel and Administration, which administers the program.

Under a different part of state law, law enforcement officers and human services workers can also have certain public information kept private. It’s a misdemeanor to go online and share personal information about a law enforcement officer or a human services worker, if that personal information poses an imminent and serious threat to their safety or their families’ safety.
