Attorney General’s Office to Hold Community Events in Polk County
MENA – Arkansas Attorney General Leslie Rutledge’s office will hold a mobile office and prescription drug take back in Polk County on Tuesday, June 27.
“My staff assisted constituents in all 75 counties with the mobile office initiative in each of the last two years,” said Attorney General 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 Mena-Polk County Senior Center. During that time, authorities from Polk County Sheriff Scott Sawyer’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.
