Rutledge Holds Office Hours in all 75 Counties Serving Thousands in Person
October 23, 2019
Says, ‘Meeting people where they are and as they are’
MOUNT IDA – Arkansas Attorney General Leslie Rutledge held office hours in Montgomery County yesterday, concluding record attendance for the fifth consecutive year as she has hosted mobile offices in all 75 counties.
“Meeting people where they are and as they are is a priority of mine,” said Attorney General Rutledge. “Filing a complaint against a bad business or getting information to make the right decision for the longterm care of a loved one should not require an all day trip to our offices in Little Rock or Northwest Arkansas but rather we will come to you and do the fighting for you.”
In 2019, 2,232 Arkansans visited an Attorney General Mobile Office. Mobile offices provide a county-by-county location to personally assist consumers in filing consumer complaints and answer questions about the full range of services provided by the Attorney General’s Office.
Attorney General Rutledge created the mobile office initiative in May 2015 so that her office and staff would be accessible to everyone. After the success of the initiative in 2015, Rutledge expanded to include Prescription Drug Take Back boxes during each visit. The office collaborates with local law enforcement agencies across the State to handle a secure box and properly dispose of the prescriptions collected. Since the addition of this service, the boxes have allowed authorities to properly dispose of nearly 620 pounds of old or unused medications.
