Judicial District Prosecuting Attorney Robin Carroll announced
Tuesday that he has fulfilled one of his campaign promises by
establishing an interactive website for the 13th Judicial District
Prosecutors Office. The website is located at www.arkprosecutor13.com.
According to Carroll, the site is designed to dramatically increase
the accessibility of his office for citizens.
My job as prosecutor is not just to prosecute criminal
cases, but to make sure that our citizens have the information
they need to protect their families and for all of us to improve
our community, said Carroll.
This website will be a great tool for getting important
information out to the public about everything from sexual predators
to scam artists who target our seniors to fighting the war on
The website is truly interactive, noted Carroll,
who said one of the best things about the website it that it
allows information to go both ways. Citizens will be able
to report crime or areas of concern over the web site
anonymously if they chose.
Carroll pointed out that one of the main purposes of the website
is to improve quality of life issues within the
to the website will be able to track sex offenders to enable
parents to more effectively protect their children. There are
also tips on how to spot a meth lab, and ways to help keep kids
safe on the Internet from harmful material and Internet stalkers.
The website also contains a link that will allow the ability
to accept hot check restitution payments online.
We will be able to get merchants their money faster, and
hopefully in larger amounts. This will also give those people
with hot checks another option in making restitution,
said Carroll, who promised to continue to build and improve
the web site.
This is only the beginning. Were going to continue
to update the web site to add helpful content and even more
interactive features, he said.
Carroll said his deputies and staff have been hard at work updating
the prosecutors office systems and policies.
This website is one part of the multi-faceted plan we
are carrying out to improve the office, he said. We
will continue to strive for excellence everyday, and we will
do everything we can to make the 13th District a better place
to live, work and raise a family.
