Benton Grade School could see more police presence under a proposal now headed to city hall.
The proposal says the Benton Police Department will have an office in the Benton Grade School where a rotating group of officers will be there 24/7. They’ll mostly be doing office work.
This was a cooperative effort between members of the school and the police department.
The proposal was approved by the school board on Tuesday and will be considered during the next city council meeting.
