The Vermont Adult and Child Abuse Registry automated system was provided by the Agency of Human Service in response to legislation to improve Vermont’s Sexual Abuse Response System. Organizations can use this system to submit background registry checks against Vermont's Adult Abuse and Child Protection Registries. This electronic system does not include Vermont Criminal Investigation Center, Department of Motor Vehicle, or any other background checks outside of the VT Adult and Child Abuse Registries.
Organizations can subscribe to the system and submit registry checks electronically. If your organization is not already subscribed you can Request a Subscription Packet by Email. If you are already a subscriber, please visit the Vermont Adult Abuse and Child Protection Registry Check Subscription System to log in and use the system.
Organizations that meet the criteria for submitting a registry check, but do not have frequent enough need to subscribe to the electronic system can submit a paper registry check by mail or email.
Organizations located Out-of-State are not eligible to have a subscription to The Vermont Adult and Child Abuse Registry automated system and must submit paper checks for both registries.
To obtain a non-subscriber APS Registry Check Form please contact Adult Protective Services at APS@vermont.gov to verify that your organization meets the criteria and receive a copy of the latest form. You can also request a copy by writing to:
