Adam Bennett of Columbia, KY, has been hired by the elite Bowling Green, KY, Police Department.
Adam went to the Department of Criminal Justice school in Richmond, KY and completed the 18 week course. He graduated November 21, 2008. In attendance that day were his parents, Tim and Rhonda Bradshaw of Columbia, KY.
Officer Bennett was sworn in as a Bowling Green policeman five days later, on November 26, 2008 by Mayor Elaine Walker. His parents were at the swearing in ceremony, and Officer Bennett's mother, Rhonda Bradshaw, pinned on his badge.
He follows a tradition of Columbians on the force. Twins David and Darrel Bragg, sons of Mr. and Mrs. Eldridge Bragg of Adair County, recently retired from the department. Columbian Matt Edwards, the son of Mr. and Mrs. Tommy Edwards, is a sergeant.
Mayor Elaine Walker spoke at the swearing in ceremony. She told the assembly that Bowling Green is considered one of the Commonwealth's five best poice departments and can be selective about members of its police force. "We can pick and choose," Tim Bradshaw quoted the Mayor as having said. "You are the best."
