Sgt. Benson and his K-9 partner Rogue. Sgt. Benson is a 21.5-year law enforcement veteran. He left TCSO in 2018 to work for the Modoc County Sheriff’s Office and has recently returned to the Tehama County Sheriff’s Office as a patrol Sergeant. Sgt. Benson is a U.S. Army Veteran, a Member of our SWAT Team, Dive Team, and the K-9 program Coordinator.
Rogue is a 5-year-old German Shepherd from Slovakia who joined Sgt. Benson while working in Modoc County. Staffing departures caused us to suspend our K-9 program over 3 years ago but Sgt. Benson and Rogue are now restarting our program. We hope to have additional K-9s in our patrol division soon!
We are excited to continue along this path of attracting quality staff and restoring services to Tehama County! Keep an eye out for more updates from us soon!
