One year ago, on July 13th, the Office of Information Privacy (“OIP”) opened a portal for Covered Persons to register for protections under Daniel’s Law.  Since that time, over 8,000 Covered Persons – active and retired judges, prosecutors, and law enforcement from the federal, state and local sectors – have taken advantage of this new statute. Also, approximately 1,800 redactors have signed up to carry out the mandate of Daniel’s Law by removing Covered Persons’ residential information from state, county, or local government agency websites.  The work of the OIP is directed at increasing personal data protections for public servants who put their lives on the line each day to carry out the State’s business.  The OIP is honored to lead this undertaking and looks forward to continuing this work in the future.  For more information go to:


The mission of the Office of Information Privacy is to carry out the mandate of Daniel’s Law: to work with State, county, and local government agencies to shield the protected information of Covered Persons as the law defines them from disclosure on those agencies’ websites, so that consistent and effective privacy protections are provided to these Persons, who serve the people of the State of New Jersey every day.

With respect to Internet postings other than those on New Jersey state, county, and municipal government websites, an authorized person, as defined by law, seeking to prohibit the disclosure of the home address or unpublished home telephone number of any covered person shall provide written notice to the entity or person advising that they are an authorized person and that they are requesting that the entity or person cease the disclosure of the information and remove the protected information from the Internet or where it is otherwise made available.  See, N.J.S.A. 2C:20-31.1(c) and N.J.S.A. 56:8-166.1(a)(2).
