HOT SPRINGS, Ark. (AP) - Arkansas' attorney general says her office is launching a new program to provide services for members of the military and also set up a "mobile offices" program that will send her employees to county seats statewide.

Attorney General Leslie Rutledge spoke Saturday to the Arkansas Associated Press Managing Editors Association. She said that active-duty military members and veterans are targeted at times by scam artists and could be in need of specific services. She introduced National Guard Col. Marcus Hatley as the leader of the unit.

Rutledge also said she would send members of her staff to county seats to provide services that might otherwise require a trip to Little Rock. She said she wants her office to be accessible to everyone.
