Authorities say crime has dropped forty-five percent. About a month ago after several burglaries Texarkana, Texas police went around the Highland Park area and handed out flyers to people. Police say thieves were stealing anything they could grab then turn around and pawn off quickly. Authorities are crediting people who live in the Highland Park area for being more aware and talking to neighbors in an effort to look out for one another.
