Arkansas Attorney General Leslie Rutledge’s Office to Hold Community Events in Van Buren County

CLINTON – Arkansas Attorney General Leslie Rutledge’s office will hold a mobile office, prescription drug take back and Digital You senior presentation in Van Buren County on Thursday, March 30.

“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 Clinton Senior Center. During that time, authorities from Van Buren County Sheriff Scott Bradley’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 the Digital You program to senior citizens. Digital Youis a comprehensive educational program created by AT&T and Common Sense Media to offer tools, tips, guidance and education for people of all levels of online experience to learn more about how to have a safe and secure online experience.

From 11 to 11:30 a.m. at the Clinton Senior Center, seniors and older adults who are digital newcomers will be given tips and tricks to learn how to use mobile devices, navigate the internet, recognize scams, keep private information secure, back up data and more so that they can be empowered online.
