As a part of its mission, the Justice Center serves as the state’s central repository for all reports of

allegations of abuse and neglect involving the approximately one million adults and children who

receive services from certain facilities and programs operated, licensed or certified by the state’s health,

human service and education agencies. The Justice Center maintains an incident management system

and hotline, known as the Vulnerable Persons’ Central Register, which accepts reports of all allegations

and tracks them to completion.
