    Rutledge Releases Statewide Public Service Announcement About Protecting Children From Predators Online

    September 3, 2019

    Says, ‘you could be allowing dangerous people into your homes and their bedrooms’

    LITTLE ROCK –Arkansas Attorney General Leslie Rutledge released a statewide public service announcement (PSA) addressing smartphone and internet safety for Arkansans. In the PSA, Rutledge is urging parents to stay aware of internet and smartphone apps that enable predators to take advantage of children.

    “Would you let your child get into the car with someone you don’t know, or spend the night with a stranger?” asked Attorney General Rutledge in the PSA. “If you don’t know who your kids are texting or gaming with on their phones, you could be allowing dangerous people into your homes and their bedrooms. Get informed and together, let’s protect our kids.”

    The special agents of the Attorney General's Special Investigations Department work with federal, state and local law enforcement agencies at every stage of investigations, arrests and convictions.

    The public service announcement can be viewed on various networks and cable stations throughout the State and can be found on Rutledge’s YouTube page.

    Arkansans who have questions can email the office at or call (800) 482-8982.
