The Texarkana Arkansas Police Department is asking for assistance within the community. We are searching for Christopher Rose for numerous counts of Breaking and or Entering into structures and vehicles, along with two counts of Criminal Mischief.
Mr. Rose is approximately 5'11" tall, weighing around 165 lbs. with blue eyes and brown hair. He possibly could be driving a silver 2002 Ford Ta**us with a Texas License Plate number GTZ 4925. Photos are attached of Mr. Rose, along with the vehicle he may be driving.
It appears Mr. Rose does not want to hold a regular job and earn things the right way. He likes to break into hard-working citizens' belongings and take property that does not belong to him. If you see Mr. Rose hanging around our great community, please give us a call at 911, and we will provide him with the appropriate lodging for a while at the Miller County Jail.
If you happen to know his whereabouts, you can contact Detective Jason White or Detective Dakota Easley at (903)-798-3154 and give them the information, they would be very appreciative, or you can call Crime Stoppers at (903)-793-STOP (7867).
Thank you for any assistance.

We want to congratulate Sheriff H.L. Phillips on his second retirement. Sheriff Phillips worked for the Miller County Sheriffs Office for 37 years and was the Sheriff of Miller County for many of those years. After retiring from the MCSO, he began working here at TAPD as one of the District Court Security Officers and a Transport Officer. After 13 years here at TAPD, he decided to retire and enjoy life doing what he loves.
If you know Sheriff Phillips, you already know how great a man he is. If you don't know Sheriff Phillips, you have missed meeting the fairest, kindest person you will ever encounter. Sheriff Phillips haves a passion for people. He cares about people and their situations. He will go the extra mile and out of his way to help someone in need. Forty years of serving our community and assisting others sums it up.
We know Sheriff Phillips will have more time to search and find Native American artifacts now that he is retired. One unique and fun thing Sheriff Phillips would do is hand out to people a 2 dollar bill.
We wish Sheriff Phillips a Happy New Year, and we thank him for his dedication and service to this fantastic community. Have a great retirement Sheriff Phillps, and once again, we say Thank you.

Yesterday, we were finally able to connect all the dots and get the winners into Paul’s Pawn and Gun Shop to accept their prizes! As we head into the final few weeks of beard wearing, all of us here at TAPD want to thank the community and all the amazing businesses for the support you have shown this year! We have shopped with over 110 kids, helped some families in need, did a bit of secret santa for the more bashful who did not want to brave the cameras, and filled our hearts with some much needed gladness this No Shave season!

Thank you to Chief Bennett for throwing out the challenge that put us at our highest year yet of No Shave and for allowing the beards to stay one more month!

The Texarkana Arkansas Police Department is teaming up with the U.S. Department of Transportation’s National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) nationwide during the 2021 Holiday Season Drive Sober or Get Pulled Over high-visibility enforcement campaign runs from December 16, 2021, through January 1, 2022. TAPD and NHTSA are working tirelessly to spread the word about the dangers of drunk driving and remind all drivers: If you plan to drink alcohol, plan ahead for a sober ride home. These expanded efforts to protect against impaired driving will be conducted in a fair and equitable way.

Sobering Statistics
According to NHTSA, 837 people lost their lives in traffic crashes involving a drunk driver in December 2019.
During the 2019 Christmas (6 p.m. Tuesday, December 24 to 5:59 a.m. Thursday, December 26) and New Year’s Day (6 p.m. Friday, December 28, 2018, to 5:59 a.m. Wednesday, January 2, 2019) holiday periods, there were more drunk-driving-related fatalities (210) than during any other holiday period that year.

The Cost of Drunk Driving
On average, a DUI can set you back $10,000 in attorney’s fees, fines, court costs, lost time at work, higher insurance rates, and more.

Celebrate with a Plan
Always remember to plan ahead if you will be celebrating. If you plan to drink, arrange for a sober driver to take you home. Is it your turn to be the designated driver? Take that role seriously and do not consume alcohol, not even one drink.

All Aboard!!!
What an exciting night Tuesday was for our Cops and Kids 2021.
We loaded up the children from the Watersprings Ranch and the Texarkana Baptist Children's Home and put them on the Polar Express downtown. Officers were standing by to welcome the children when they arrived. Santa was also there and greeted them at the door, accompanied by the Polar Express Conductor, who handed each child a Golden Ticket!
Waiting for the kiddos was Christmas music, food, games, crafts, and well, you name it! The photos say it all.
Once it was over, we put them back on the Polar Express and delivered them home safely.
Again, Thank you to all who made this special night fantastic for the children.

Congratulations to Investigator Matt Warner for being awarded the prestigious Bull Dog Award for 2021!
Investigator Warner works under the excellent leadership of Sergeant Kyle Caudle and Lieutenant Nick Elrod. Investigator Warner is also the son of Sergeant Devin Warner. Lt. Elrod could not be present today, so Lieutenant Ed Chattaway presented Investigator Warner with the award.

Below is how Lt. Elrod describes Investigator Warner's dedication to making our community a better place to work, live and raise a family.

Investigator Warner was selected to be a member of the narcotics unit back in February 2021. When Investigator Warner was selected, he had to learn how to work cases very quickly.

He and Sergeant Caudle were the only two Investigators our unit had to work with at that time. This was especially challenging due to the significant influx of drugs and guns in our community based on numerous national policies that have contributed to a soft border with Mexico and an increase in drug smuggling. Matt and Kyle were completely overwhelmed with case files, property submissions, and interviews. Matt never complained about his workload. As a matter of fact, he welcomed more work.

Matt was a new Investigator, but he never shied away from the work that was expected of him. He worked long hours and was on call every week. When called into work, he never complained and always did a good job. Matt was involved with countless investigations where his participation was vital to the cases' success. In my experience, Matt learned quicker and produced more cases than any new Investigator that I have witnessed in my career. It was obvious that Matt was a good selection for our unit right away.

As a supervisor, it was a relief that our unit had an Investigator that could make such a difference from "day one".

So far in his time as a narcotics Investigator, I have witnessed a drive-in Matt that is consistent with what the Bull Dog Award stands for. It is not just one thing, but it is a consistent drive.

It is a desire to serve his community and not expect anything in return. To understand that his job is mostly a thankless career and still performs at the highest levels. This is a mindset that Matt has been raised to have, and he displays it on a daily basis.

Matt has been instrumental in changing the narcotics unit's mindset from a somewhat reactive mindset to one that is more proactive in nature. To understand and embracing a way of doing your best each and every day is an admirable quality and should be rewarded.
