Bossier Sheriff Julian Whittington presented Benton Police Department Officer LaRandle Taylor a check nearing $24,000 from yesterday's hamburger fundraiser.

Sheriff Whittington expressed his pleasure showed by the community in helping a member of the law enforcement community.
“I think like this really backs up what I’m saying and support that the people in this area they know what tough job that we have, even when something seems as harmless like directing traffic we know can turn into an almost fatal situation”, said Sheriff Whittington.

Officer Taylor says he’s grateful for the outpouring of love shown to him and his family from everyone that gave.

Officer Taylor serves as a part-time police officer with the Benton Police Department, and with his part-time status, he is not eligible to receive sick pay and he does not have insurance to help cover his medical expenses.
