Government Law Law Enforcement Procedures

Texarkana USA Law Enforcement Policies & Procedures

Issue: There exists much distrust within the minority community as to whether law enforcement leadership nationwide are adequately employing, training, and discipling law enforcement employees in properly interacting with personnel in the community especially minority personnel. The concern arises from observed senseless and unjustified injury and in some cases senseless and unjustified death of citizens to include innocent citizens. The concern also arises from observed failure of law enforcement to timely and adequately respond to senseless and unjustified injury and in some cases senseless and unjustified death of citizens to include innocent citizens by other citizens.

Part of the purpose of this website is to make centrally transparently publicly readily and easily available local law enforcement policies and procedures and data with respect to Equitable Justice in Policing and associated issues.  Right now people have to wade through and search far too many sites and levels to ascertain such information about the multitude of law enforcement agencies/departments in the Texarkana Area.

Below is a list of selected documents from the identified City. Texarkana Texas Documents were identified through a search of the city website in May 2020.  Additional documents are available at the city website.  Need to make check with the Police Department to make sure the latest has been uploaded to their site. Corresponding information concerning Bowie County, Texarkana, Arkansas and Miller County has not been identified yet.

The City Website Column should have the latest document. The Downloaded column is included since organizations tend to reorganize websites and change links; therefore in case the City Website link is broken the downloaded version is available for information purposes.   Additionally, the downloaded version provides a historical comparison. Provided means not taken from web but provided by organization.
