Law enforcement officials report that crime is down in Texarkana.
Both Arkansas and Texas are enjoying the downward trend. At a joint city meeting Tuesday, police officials said they are happy to see lower occurrences. However, officials add that crime happens in a cyclical fashion and they do expect it to go back up. But crime in general is on the decline.
TTPD Chief Daniel Shiner said, “We’re on a decreasing trend in crime from twenty years ago. And so, a little bit at a time, on the average, we have seen crime go down in our community, when the community has grown in population and size.”
Shiner added that fighting crime is a community effort.
