This morning each of the Junior Police Academy students had the opportunity to put on the “drunk goggles” and do some practicals with members of the DWI team! They were all in awe of how difficult it can be to drive and walk a straight line when you are impaired.

The Benton County Sheriff's Office Police Athletic League has been in full swing since Monday morning. Earlier this week they had the opportunity to tour the BCSO Jail, Juvenile Detention, BC Courthouse, meet with the Prosecuting Attorneys, visit Judge Scott and his Courtroom, Army National Guard, spend the day with the BCSO SWAT team doing practical and observe the K9 Division conduct some training activities with the bite suit. Here are a few photos from the past few days.

This case involved multiple divisions within the Benton County Sheriff's Office including the Narcotics Division, Criminal Investigation Division, and the Cyber Crimes Division. Each division worked swiftly in building their case, apprehending the suspect and preventing any further criminal activity. This case provides an excellent opportunity for parents in our community to engage their children and speak on the dangers associated with unprotected sexual activity, meeting people online and sexual activity with partners that are not well known. The dangers from sexual activity are high enough without predators such as Stephen Koch, purposely and with intent, spreading Sexually Transmitted Diseases to partners without their knowledge. #protectbenco

Just a little First Friday Fun!! #protectbenco

The Community First food pantry is now fully stocked and ready to be utilized to its fullest potential. It is located at Thairapy Salon in Gravette. (605 1st Ave NW, Gravette, AR.) Over the past month the Benton County Sheriff’s Office has held a friendly competition, between divisions, to see who can raise the most dry and canned goods to fill the pantry. We had an overwhelming response from our employees and now have plenty of food to keep the pantry stocked for weeks to come. Once we decided to move forward with the Community First Pantry, we reached out to the Gravette Police Department and ask if they would like to partner with us and this program. Without hesitation they jumped on board and began getting donations. We are thankful to Thairapy Salon, in Gravette, for presenting this amazing idea to Deputy Massey to help feed the hungry in their community, offering to keep the pantry at their salon and keeping a watchful eye on any needs of the pantry. The Community First Pantry was built by one of the Benton County Sheriff’s Office Work Detail crews. All the materials to build the pantry were donated by Creative Trade Marks and Thairapy Salon. The artwork on the pantry was donated by Arkansas Sign and Banner. This pantry was a joint effort between many generous people in our community. We are thankful to all those who participated in the launching of this wonderful program and hope to see others follow around the county and state. It is our hope that those living in the community help keep this pantry full and those that are in need are provided for. #protectbenco #communityfirst #communityfirstpantry #gravettepd #thairapysalon #creativetrademarks #arkansassignandbanner #bcsoworkdetail
