Attorney General Rutledge created the mobile office initiative to make the office accessible to everyone, particularly to those who live outside the capital city. She believes no issue is too small for her staff to have a face-to-face conversation.
Mobile offices assist constituents with consumer-related issues including filing consumer complaints and providing information about scams, identity theft, fraud, internet safety, prescription drug misuse and other protections. The Attorney General’s office held office hours in all 75 counties 2015, 2016, 2017, 2018 and 2019.
Attorney General Rutledge expanded mobile office services to include Prescription Drug Take Back boxes by partnering with law enforcement agencies who handle a secure box and properly dispose of the prescriptions collected. She encourages Arkansans to bring their old, unused or expired prescriptions, over-the-counter medicines, vitamins, pet medicines, medicated ointments and lotions, inhalers, liquid medicines in glass or leak-proof containers and medicine samples to an upcoming mobile office.
