During the months of April and May the Carl & Alleen McKinney Unit of the Boys & Girls Club of Benton County is celebrating the local neighborhood heroes in the Mighty Little’s ( a character program for 6-7 year old kids) and Mighty Movers (a character program for 8-9 year old kids). On Wednesday, April 23rd, Bentonville Police Officer Tom Boyle and Canine Unit Officer Cooper came and spoke with these kids about what it is like to serve in the community and gave the kids some safety tips. The kids’ favorite activity was the Officers’ canine demonstration. The kids also enjoyed crawling through the police SUV and checking-out the siren along with all the other neat equipment.
