DPA's Automated Attendant

The Frankfort Office of the Department of Public Advocacy has installed an automated phone attendant to direct calls made to the primary number, (502) 564-8006. All callers to this number will be provided a menu from which to select the appropriate party or workgroup. To access the employee directory, callers may press "9." During normal business hours callers may press "0" to speak with the receptionist. Callers may press an extension number at any time during the process, even upon hearing the message of the party you were attempting to reach. Simply press the extension number you wish and the call will be transferred. Listed below are extension numbers and names for the major sections of the Department located in Frankfort. Make note of the extension number(s) you frequently call. Should you have questions about this system or experience problems, please call Roy Collins or the Law Operations Division, ext. 136.
