Child and Adult Abuse and Neglect Central Registry
​Nebraska Law (Rev. Stat. 28-718 and 28-376) states the Department of Health and Human Services (DHHS) must keep records of persons who DHHS or the courts find responsible for abuse and neglect of a child or vulnerable adult.  DHHS maintains these records in the Nebraska Adult and Child Abuse and Neglect Central Registry. 
 
  • The Child Abuse and Neglect Central Registry maintains all reports of child abuse and neglect opened for investigation, classified as either Court Substantiated or Agency Substantiated.
    • Any time after the completion of an investigation, the subject of a report may request DHHS amend, expunge, or remove the record from the Registry.

  • The Adult Protective Services Central Registry maintains all reports of abuse, neglect, or exploitation of a vulnerable adult opened for investigation, classified as either Court Substantiated or Agency Substantiated.
    • Any time after the completion of an investigation, a vulnerable adult, his or her legal guardian, or a person mentioned in a report as having allegedly abused, neglected, or exploited a vulnerable adult believes the information in the report to be inaccurate or the report is maintained in a manner inconsistent with the APS Act, he or she may request DHHS amend, expunge, or remove the record from the Registry.
