A former criminal prosecutor and civil rights attorney, Dana Nessel was sworn in as Michigan’s 54th Attorney General on January 1, 2019.

Address Confidentiality Program

For anyone who is at an increased risk of physical harm or threats – including the victims of stalking, domestic violence, sexual assault, or human trafficking – the fear of being found by their perpetrator can be overwhelming.

The Address Confidentiality Program will help victims of violent crimes, and individuals at risk of being threatened or physically harmed, keep their address confidential.

Power Outages Feedback for Department of Attorney General

Attorney General Nessel wants to collect input from the public on recent power outages to better inform her consumer advocacy before the Michigan Public Service Commission.

Recently, she called on the two largest utility companies in the state to prioritize customers who dealt with extended power outages through automatic bill credits instead of an application process and the creation of a fund to assist displaced customers during significant power outages.

You can learn more about those efforts in this Aug. 16 press release.
