Tennessee program helps protect domestic violence victims

By  | 

JACKSON, Tenn. (WVLT/WBBJ) -- A new program in Tennessee aims to help survivors of domestic violence. The "Safe at Home" Address Confidentiality program is designed to help victims stay safe by keeping their home addresses from public record, CBS affiliate WBBJ reported.

“The state address that they are given to use, they use that state address rather than their home address,” said Cinda Gee, a Clinical Program Manager at the Wo/Men’s Resource and Rape Assistance Program (WRAP).

WBBJ reported that data from the Tennessee Bureau of Investigation's data shows that more than 80 murders in 2017 were linked to domestic violence.
