On January 14, 2003, Mike Beebe was sworn in as the 51st Attorney General for the State of Arkansas. As chief law-enforcement officer, Beebes responsibility is to represent the people of the state and to be the guardian of their interests. He and his staff are committed to safeguarding consumers, protecting seniors from abuse and neglect, and developing solutions to problems ranging from upholding criminal convictions to protecting children from predators on the Internet.
In the past three years as Attorney General, Beebes Consumer Protection Division engaged in enforcement efforts that resulted in judgments or settlements of more than $46.2 million; saved utility ratepayers $111.1 million; disbursed nearly $1 million in individual restitution from antitrust actions against pharmaceutical companies, and recovered more that $5.1 million in restitution of consumer complaints. Beebes office filed 1,417 criminal appellate briefs to ensure that convicted criminals serve their sentences, while, at the same time, providing over $11 million in compensation to crime victims. In the area of Medicaid fraud, Beebes office works hard to protect those who reside in our states long-term care facilities and has recovered $10.5 in civil settlements and criminal restitution.
Beebe is committed to promoting policies and enforcing laws that give our states young people a safe environment and a brighter future. His office serves as the statewide clearinghouse for missing and exploited children, hosts Missing Childrens Day and a Child-Safety Fair, and Beebe has created Mentor Arkansas, a program designed to encourage individuals and corporate citizens to participate in the lives of Arkansas youth.
