Arkansas Attorney General Leslie Rutledge’s office will hold a mobile office, prescription drug take back and senior scam and identity theft prevention presentation in Phillips County on Tuesday, April 25.
“My staff assisted constituents in all 75 counties with the mobile office initiative in each of the last two years,” said Rutledge. “Last year, I expanded our community outreach programs to bring even more educational opportunities to constituents, in their neighborhoods. I want to bring the Attorney General’s office to all Arkansans, without having to drive to downtown Little Rock.”
During the Attorney General Mobile Office, staff members will assist constituents with consumer-related issues in filing consumer complaints and providing information about scams, identity theft, fraud and other protections from 10 to 11:30 a.m. at the Helena-West Helena Senior Center. During that time, authorities from Phillips County Sheriff Neal Byrd’s 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.
Meanwhile, community educators will also present a senior scams and identity theft prevention presentation to senior citizens. From 11 to 11:30 a.m. at the Helena-West Helena Senior Center, seniors and older adults can learn about common scams that target them, along with way to spot and prevent identity theft.
