Attorney General Josh Stein and the Department of Justice are charged with providing law enforcement, legal and consumer help across North Carolina.
His top issues are fighting crime and fraud and providing the right information for people to make smart decisions about their safety and their money.
Prevention, treatment and enforcement are all needed to tackle the Opioid Crisis.
The crime fight includes tough laws and better resources for investigators, like more use of DNA evidence.
Protecting consumers means going after scam artists who trick people into bad deals like risky loans or telemarketing swindles.
Public protection also means taking care of the state’s most vulnerable residents, such as seniors in long-term care and children at school.
