From the desk of Benton County Sheriff Eric Knox

I want to thank the citizens of Benton County, and all those who have reached out with prayers, concerns and well wishes after the motorcycle accident on October 11th that my wife, Joy and I were involved in.

I want to express my deep gratitude to all those who stopped and helped on the bridge, our amazing Benton County first responders and the Life Flight crew that quickly got us to the care we needed. I want to assure you that I am on the road to recovery and that your Sheriff’s Office is strong and ready to serve you. 

To my deputies and law enforcement family, thank you for your support and all you do every day. I have full confidence that Benton County citizens will continue to be served with the same amount of professionalism while I recover. I ask that you continue to pray for my wife Joy as she recovers from the injuries she received.
