The Address Confidentiality Program (ACP) is administered by the Louisiana Secretary of State's Office and was modeled after the original program developed in the State of Washington in 1991. In 2006, Louisiana passed ACP legislation and laws governing the ACP which are found in Title 44:51-57 of the Louisiana Revised Statutes.
The ACP provides relocated victims of abuse, sexual assault or stalking, with a substitute address to use in place of their actual address when they apply for or receive state or local government services (i.e. driver's license, voter's registration, public school records, etc.). The goal of the ACP is to prevent an assailant or potential assailant from finding the location of a victim through the state's public records. The ACP is not a witness protection program and does not assist participants in obtaining new names, social security numbers, or in relocating to a new residence. The ACP does not provide legal advice to the participant.
The ACP acts as the agent of an ACP program participant for purposes of service of process and forwards all first-class, certified or registered mail to the participant.
The ACP also works with state and local government agencies to ensure compliance of ACP legislative rules and to facilitate the use of the substitute address.
