Attorney General Jack Conway and his staff will raise awareness about cybersafety, consumer protection and prescription drug abuse at this year's Kentucky State Fair, which runs from Aug. 20 to Aug. 30 at the Kentucky Fair and Exposition Center in Louisville.

"My office is dedicated to protecting our children and our seniors, but we need the help of all Kentuckians," Attorney General Conway said. "If you're attending the Kentucky State Fair this year, I hope you will stop by our booth in the South Wing to learn more about how we can all work together to help keep Kentuckians safe."

The Office of the Attorney General's booth, located in the "Kidz Biz" section of the South Wing, will have information and giveaway items to combat cybercrimes, protect consumers from the latest scams, and educate Kentuckians about the dangers of prescription drug abuse.

"I encourage folks to visit our booth at the Kentucky State Fair," Attorney General Conway said. "It's a great opportunity to connect with our office. Our staff will be onsite to offer assistance, and every person will receive valuable information about how to protect themselves, their families and their neighbors."
