The Department administers the Child Abuse Registry and the Adult Abuse Registry to record the names of individuals found to have abused or neglected a child or vulnerable adult. A vulnerable adult is: a vulnerable person defined in The Vulnerable Persons Living with a Mental Disability Act , or a patient defined in The Protection for Persons in Care Act.
 
Any person may apply for a Child Abuse Registry check or an Adult Abuse Registry check to determine if his or her name is listed on either registry.
 
Employers are encouraged to use these registries along with other protective strategies like criminal records checks and human resource practices to supplement their screening and reference check processes.

The use of these registries helps reduce abuse and/or neglect by providing organizations with information that can prevent registered individuals from working with children and vulnerable adults in the future.
