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.
