Adult Maltreatment Central Registry
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. If you disagree with DHS's true findings, you have a right to appeal the decision within thirty (30) days of being notified.
If your name is already on the Registry, you may be eligible to have it removed. Generally, if DHS made a true finding of neglect against you and your name was placed on the Registry at least a year ago, you may petition DHS to have your name removed. Details are available in the Fact Sheet below.
