Benson Police Department News

On 2/16/2018, the Benson Police Department was made aware of possible threats of violence at the Benson High School. The information was provided by a parent. Benson Police Detectives immediately started investigating the alleged threats. After completing interviews, searching the residences of the suspects and speaking with the families of the suspects, it has been determined that the three students involved do not pose a danger. The case will be presented the Cochise County Attorney’s Office for consideration.

It was a great night for a parade and the tree lighting. Great crowds along the parade route and then at City Hall.

A short follow up to the Light Parade and Tree Lighting Post, the parade route will be the same route we use for all of our other parades except we will turn south on San Pedro Street and go to 7th Street and back to Patagonia Street. Immediately after the parade we will close down 6th Street in front of City Hall to allow for foot traffic attending the tree lighting, City Hall parking lots will be open and accessible. HOPE TO SEE YOU THERE🎅🤶🎄🎄🎄
