In the absence of a rule for formulating headings for the prosecuting attorneys of jurisdictions, apply the principle of a conventionalized heading as authorized by 24.23 for courts also to these prosecuting attorneys.

1. Enter under the heading for the appropriate jurisdiction. Note that in the states of the United States prosecuting attorneys are agents of the states as a whole, not agents of a particular county as a publication might suggest.

2. Use the conventional name for the office, e.g., "Attorney," "District Attorney."

3. Add as a parenthetical qualifier the name of the particular area served.
