The 4th District Prosecutor's Office consists of an elected Chief Prosecuting Attorney, 14 Deputy Prosecutors, 2 Victim-Witness Coordinators, a Hot Check Collection expert, and a support staff including Law Clerks and Specialists.
We serve both Washington and Madison Counties located in the Northwest corner of Arkansas with a combined population of 216,000 people.
Each year the office is responsible for approximately 3000 new felony cases originated by local law enforcement agencies, 2000 Juvenile Cases, several thousand complaints filed by private citizens, and all misdemeanors committed outside the corporate limits of the cities.
We have the sole responsibility for committing mentally ill people to the Arkansas State Hospital, 911 Adjustments (changing the status of released mentally ill people in our community), and for extraditing defendants from other states.
Because the office has the same power as a Grand Jury to issue subpoenas, it also assists law enforcement agencies and conducts its own investigations of criminal activity when appropriate.
Please contact the office at (479) 444-1570 for any inquiries.
