The Adult Maltreatment Central Registry is maintained by the Arkansas Department of Human Services and includes all individuals against whom a true finding of abuse or neglect has been made. A true finding does not mean that the abuse or neglect goes on your criminal record, but being on the Registry could negatively affect your employment and professional licensing. DHS will notify you by mail if it has made a true finding against you.
When a Juvenile Court has an abuse or neglect case, its goal is to keep children safe and help families have safe homes for their children. If possible, the judge will let the children stay in the home if they can be protected from harm. The judge takes children out of their home when they cannot be safe and protected in the home.
