Scroll down to see some of the volunteer activities members of the Sheriff’s Office participated in recently…
On September 20, 2013, thirteen members of all four divisions of the Sheriff’s Office – Law Enforcement, Corrections, Parole and Probation and Support Services – volunteered their time to help give back to an elderly couple who needed help maintaining their home.
On September 8, 2013 eighteen teams faced off in the 6th Annual Benton County Sheriff’s Office Chili Cook-Off. Five of those teams were fielded by BCSO members. Taking home the grand prize for “Benton’s Best Rootin’ Tootin’ Shoot ‘em Up Chili” was BCSO’s own Parole & Probation Team. Funds raised at the event this year will go toward the BCSO K-9 program.
Sheriff’s Office members dug into their own pockets to purchase school supplies for rural Benton County Schools. Benefiting from the supply of backpacks, crayons, notebooks, colored pencils, paper, glue, and just about any other supply that might be needed in the classroom were teachers and students in Alsea, Monroe and Kings Valley.
Sheriff’s Office employees will take on any challenge for a good cause…including dressing up in wacky costumes and jumping into the Willamette River in the middle of winter! That’s what one team of hardy BCSO employees did on February 9, 2013 to help raise money for Oregon Special Olympics. Helping keep all participants in the event safe was the BCSO Marine Patrol.
