Question

I have been the victim of a crime, how can the Fayetteville Prosecutor's Office help me?

Answer

If a citizen feels they have been the victim of a crime, they may contact this office and our support staff will ask some questions for example: (1) Did the incident occur in Fayetteville? (2) Was anyone arrested? (3) Is the suspect age 18 or over? (4) Is the incident possibly a violation of the Arkansas Criminal Code or City Ordinance. Then the citizen is given an appointment to make a formal complaint.

The Prosecutor's Office takes complaints from citizens which can range from Assault, Battery (Domestic Abuse), Theft, to Barking Dogs. This office has jurisdiction over all misdemeanors which occur within the City Limits of Fayetteville.
