Benton Police Department
Chief Kirk Lane
The 2012 Ford Mustang was added to our fleet with the addition of our School Resource Sergeant position for the 2013-2014 school year. Chief Lane chose the Mustang because he wanted a vehicle that would grab the attention of our students. The vehicle was purchased with drug seizure funds. Chief Kirk Lane and Sgt. Lisa Stuart worked with a local company, Big Impressions Graphics, to wrap the vehicle. We chose to incorporate the school colors, maroon and gray, and school mascot, the Panther, into the design. The mascot logo was designed by students in the High School Art Club. For cohesion with the rest of the fleet, we also used the reflective wording used on the patrol vehicles. This vehicle is also outfitted with the latest and brightest lights, including a cool feature of lights in the wheels. The graphics on this vehicle are unique as it is a one of a kind. Looking closely, you can see maroon and black panther paws in the “splotches” in the background. This vehicle not only serves in the school atmosphere, it ties to the community by performing patrol functions, working grant task force, leading parades and being on show during community events. This vehicle gains attention from adults and children everywhere it goes . It is a wonderful conversation starter between officers and citizens.
