Description

The bill prohibits the department of human services (department)
from including information about a person suspected of child abuse or
neglect to the Colorado TRAILS system (system) absent notice and a
hearing.
The bill requires the department to provide the person with written

notice of the department's intent to list the person's name in the system
and request a hearing before a department administrative law judge (ALJ)
within 14 days after making a finding substantiating the allegations. A
hearing is not required if a court has issued an order in a proceeding in
which allegations of child abuse or neglect are at issue. The bill specifies
the procedural requirements for a hearing before an ALJ.
The department is prohibited from releasing information about the
person or the allegations against the person to a third party until all
appeals are exhausted or waived.
The bill requires the department to maintain each report of
suspected child abuse or neglect for 2 years from the date the report is
received. Two years after the date of the original adjudication, a person
listed in the system may request to have the person's name expunged from
the system by submitting a written request to the department. If the
request for expungement is denied, the person must wait an additional 2
years before submitting another request for expungement. The department
may administratively expunge the person's name from the system.
