Benton Police Department News

Officer Roush was conducting a walk-through of the River Center recently whenever he was asked to shoot some baskets with his new friend Kaleb. He took a few minutes out to play, but decided to leave after Kaleb put up double digit points on him. We definitely think that Kaleb has a future in basketball! #KidsFirst

The next Car Seat Safety Check will be Saturday, July 14 from 10 a.m. to noon at BNPD (114 S. East St. Suite 100). Come see us for help with installing your child's car seat OR inspection for correct installation. Having the child with you will help ensure the best fit, but technicians will be able to help either way. See you there! #BNPD #SeatSafetyCheck #ProtectingOurFuture #BecauseKidsMatter
