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.
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.
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.
