Who We Are
THE NUMBER 1 TRUSTED SITE FOR POLICE PRIVACY AND ONLINE SAFETY FOR PUBLIC OFFICIALS AND LAW ENFORCEMENT OFFICERS; WE HAVE SUCCESSFULLY REMOVED THOUSANDS OF OFFICERS AND THEIR FAMILIES INFORMATION FROM ONLINE DATABASES AND CONTINUE TO PROTECT ALL SWORN AGENTS ONE FAMILY AT A TIME!
The Public Safety Assistance Foundation ("PSAF") is an IRS recognized California Non-Profit 501(c)(3) organization. Through our subsidiary, Privacyforcops.org, our mission is to assist all law enforcement officers, public officials, and their families in facilitating, executing, and monitoring the complete removal (also referred to as "opting-out") of their personal information from websites and information databases, which sell and/or publicly post your confidential information.
Until recently, our services were exclusively for California law enforcement officers and public officials. Due to the support by our affiliates and several police officer associations ("POA's"), we are actively expanding and now providing services outside of California.
