    When it comes to crime in Benton, you rarely hear about it. There is mostly just drugs and racing ,but nothing to serious.
    Benton is a small town, but its a place to be when you want to raise a good christian family. Our town, is a helpful town, we come to people in need.
    It is a great place to live. There is not a lot of crime. There are a lot of churches and local businesses in this area.
