PRESS RELEASE
2/22/11

Kevin Hillman, Pulaski County Prosecuting Attorney announces that he has restarted the Prosecutorís Office aggressive bad check collection program.  In order to assist merchants with the losses caused by bad checks, the Prosecutorís Office has available guides for merchants that give information on how to accept a check that allows for future prosecution in the event of a dishonored check.  In addition, the Prosecutorís Office has signs available for merchants to display indicating that they are participating in the Prosecutorís Office bad check program.

ďAlthough the use of checks has declined with the increase of debit and credit cards, bad checks remain a problem.  Failing to pay after a check bounces is a form of theft.  This behavior drives up prices for everyone and law abiding citizens in Pulaski County should not be victimized by this conduct.  My office will be aggressive in order to try and minimize the damage bad checks cause,Ē said Pulaski County Prosecuting Attorney Kevin Hillman. 

If anyone is interested in obtaining a copy of the bad check guide or a sign, please contact the Prosecutorís Office at 573-774-4770 and ask to speak with the bad check clerk.  In addition, if you are the victim of a bad check, please contact the office to inquire how to properly report the offense. 

Please direct all questions to Kevin Hillman, Pulaski County Prosecuting Attorney.
