BENTON TOWNSHIP, Mich. - Are you considering a new career? If so, how about helping serve and protect in Benton Township, Michigan, where right now, they're hiring and offering bonuses.
Benton Township is the busiest municipal department in Berrien County with more than 13,500 police calls handled last year.
Right now, it only has 12 officers on patrol, only half of the 24 they're budgeted for, and the township board just approved $5,000 signing bonuses for new hires and other incentives.
New Police Chief Greg Abrams, says they've been losing too many veteran officers to other local departments, so Benton Township is now offering $6,500 retention bonuses as well.
