AG's mobile office to visit county July 9
Arkansas Attorney General Leslie Rutledge’s office will hold the county’s annual mobile office, a prescription drug take back and a presentation on common scams in Carroll County on Tuesday, July 9.
“In 2015, I began holding mobile offices to reach Arkansans where they live,” Rutledge said. “Arkansans deserve to have access to the Attorney General’s Office without having to drive to downtown Little Rock. In addition to the mobile office, my staff provides additional outreach programs and educational opportunities while visiting communities around the State all year.”
During the Attorney General Mobile Office, staff members will assist constituents with consumer-related issues by filing consumer complaints and providing information about scams, identity theft, fraud and other threats from 10:30 a.m. to noon at the Carroll County Senior Activity & Wellness Center. During that time, authorities from Carroll County Sheriff Jim Ross’ office will also collect prescription medicines, over-the-counter medicines, vitamins, pet medicines, medicated ointments and lotions, inhalers, liquid medicines in glass or leak-proof containers and medicine samples as part of a prescription drug take back event.
Community educators will also make a presention on senior scams and identity theft. From 11:30 a.m. to noon at the Carroll County Senior Activity & Wellness Center, seniors and older adults can learn about common scams that target them, along with ways to spot and prevent identity theft.
