Launch of Daniel’s Law Portal


MAYS LANDING – Atlantic County Prosecutor’s Office

The NJ Department of Community Affairs will be launching the Daniel’s law portal on July 12, 2022. The launching of the portal allows covered persons, active and retired prosecutors and law enforcement, to have certain personal information redacted in public records.

Daniel’s Law was enacted in response to the tragic death of Daniel Anderl, the son of Judge Esther Salas and Mark Anderl. The law prohibits disclosure of the residential addresses of certain persons covered by the law (“Covered Persons”) on websites controlled by state, county, and local government agencies. The community of Covered Persons includes former, active, and retired judicial officers, prosecutors, and members of law enforcement and their immediate family members residing in the same household.

“Daniel’s Law has quickly become a central part of our approach toward ensuring that our dedicated public servants feel safe and protected in their homes from people who seek retribution or harm,” said Lt. Governor Sheila Oliver, who serves as DCA Commissioner. “To effectively carry out their jobs, public servants must feel safe. The OIP is working hand-in-hand with our state agencies and partners to ensure that this portal does what it is intended to do – protect and save lives.”

Access to the portal will be done through the My NJ site, same as MBOS.  Registered users will be able to request their personal information to be redacted. If you do not have a log in for myNJ, the New Jersey Department of Community Affairs (DCA) encourages all potential users to sign-up now before the Daniel’s law portal opens.

For more information concerning Daniel’s Law and portal, readers can go the DCA’s website at:  https://www.nj.gov/dca/news/news/2022/approved/20220629.shtml
