What is the APS Registry?
In 2006, Arizona’s legislature passed a bill to create the APS Registry that took effect July 1, 2007, and is open to the public The registry contains the name and date of birth of the person determined to have abused, neglected or exploited a vulnerable adult, the nature of the allegation made and the date and description of the disposition of the allegation. The names of the vulnerable adult and reporting source are not listed on the registry.
The purpose of Arizona’s Adult Protective Services Registry is to prevent vulnerable adults and children from being victimized by individuals who have been found, through an APS investigation and due process, to have abused, neglected or exploited a vulnerable adult. Employers are encouraged to review the registry when deciding whether to employ a person to provide care for vulnerable populations. The decision to hire a person listed on the APS Registry is solely up to the employer.
