Recently, the speed limit on a section of Burma/Wake Village Road was lowered to 30 MPH thus making the entire stretch of roadway from the traffic circle all the way to West 7th a 30 MPH zone. The reduction in speed was due to an increase in pedestrian traffic and vehicle crashes along this route. The signs have already been changed. Drive safely!

Never forget the loss of this hero...

As we continue to commemorate National Police Week, we again pause to honor those law enforcement officers who have paid the ultimate price in the service to our community. This is the final installment in our series of posts to tell you the story of local heroes who made that sacrifice.

At about 12:30 a.m. on Friday, June 14, 2013, Texarkana Texas Police Officer Jason Sprague responded to reports of a large disturbance involving about 100 people at Grady T. Wallace Park. As he was attempting to make contact with the driver of a SUV, the vehicle suddenly accelerated, struck him, and then fled the area. Officer Sprague was transported to a local hospital where he succumbed to his injuries the following morning, June 15th.

The 21 year old man who struck him was arrested the following day after being interviewed by detectives. He was later convicted of murder and sentenced to 30 years on prison.

Jason had served with the Texarkana Police Department for two years and had previously served with several agencies in Arkansas. He is survived by his wife and young son, his mother and step-father, his father, two brothers and two sisters.

Officer Sprague, thank you for your service.

Never forget...

As we continue to commemorate National Police Week, we again pause to honor those law enforcement officers who have paid the ultimate price in the service to our community. This is the fourth installment in our series of posts to tell you the story of local heroes who made that sacrifice.

Bowie County Deputy Sherri Jones was shot and killed in the basement of the Bowie County Courthouse in New Boston while preparing to transport a prisoner at about 2:30 in the afternoon on April 18, 2011.

The 24 year old prisoner had been charged with assaulting his mother the year before and had just left a competency hearing at the Courthouse. Deputy Jones was escorting the prisoner from a courtroom to a transportation van to drive him to a state facility. He overpowered her in the Courthouse basement and shot her with her own gun. He then stole the transportation van and fled to Arkansas, where he was taken into custody about an hour later in Ashdown.

While the man's mental competency was an issue while awaiting trial, he was eventually declared competent. In 2014, he pleaded guilty to first degree murder and was sentenced to life in prison. He must serve at least 30 years before he is eligible for parole.

Deputy Jones had served with the Bowie County Sheriff's Office for six years.

Deputy Jones, thank you for your service.

Tragedy...remember this hero!!

As we continue to commemorate National Police Week, we again pause to honor those law enforcement officers who have paid the ultimate price in the service to our community. This is the third installment in our series of posts to tell you the story of local heroes who made that sacrifice.

On the morning of Saturday, June 30, 2007, Bowie County Deputy Michael Page responded to a report of a car hitting a telephone pole on Daniel Chapel Road, north of New Boston. When he saw a man running into the nearby woods, he pursued him and a scuffle ensued in the woods. He was struck over the head and then shot in the shoulder with his own weapon. Paramedics and other officers located Deputy Page as he walked himself out of the woods. He was taken by ambulance to St. Michael Hospital where he died.

A search team using bloodhounds found the body of the 36 year old suspect from DeKalb in a wooded area near the crash scene with a self-inflicted gunshot wound.

Deputy Page served with the Bowie County Sheriff's Office for three years and had previously served with the Texarkana Police Department for five years. He was survived by his wife, three young children, his parents, and three sisters.

Deputy Page, thank you for your service.

As we commemorate National Police Week, we pause to honor those law enforcement officers who have paid the ultimate price in the service to our community. This is the second installment in our series of posts to tell you the story of a local hero who made that sacrifice.

Late on March 31, 1984, Miller County Deputy Charles Barnes Sr. was shot and killed after he stopped to investigate a vehicle parked on the side of a county road off of Highway 196. As he talked to the three people in the vehicle, one of them said that he had to use the bathroom. Deputy Barnes told the man to step to the edge of the woods but to stay where he could still see him. As the other two distracted Deputy Barnes, the first man managed to sneak back to the car and get a rifle.

The three overpowered Deputy Barnes, put him on his knees, and then shot him execution style. The suspects then stole his patrol car. Deputy Barnes was found by another deputy who responded to the scene after he failed to answer his radio.

One of the suspects was shot and killed in a shootout with officers the following day. The other two men were arrested and sentenced to prison.

Deputy Barnes was survived by his wife, son, mother, and brother.

Deputy Barnes, thank you for your service.

TTPD is doing a wonderful job of remembering those hero’s we’ve lost, we’ll be sharing their tributes here on our page.

As we commemorate National Police Week, we pause to honor those law enforcement officers who have paid the ultimate price in the service to our community. Every day this week, we will tell you the story of a local hero who made that sacrifice.

The first officer is Lieutenant Edward Worrell of the Texarkana Arkansas Police Department.

On February 3, 1977, Lieutenant Worrell and Officer Butch Clark were dispatched to a burglary in progress call at what was then the old Howard's Department Store on North Stateline Avenue. As they arrived and got out of their unit, they were ambushed by a 16 year old juvenile with a rifle who was standing watch in the parking lot while his two accomplices robbed the store. Both officers were struck by gunfire and Lieutenant Worrell was fatally wounded. All three juvenile suspects were located and arrested within a couple of hours of the shooting.

John Lohbauer was sentenced to life in prison. His two accomplices were each sentenced to twenty years each and eventually paroled to other states in 1986. Lohbauer was denied parole four times since the murder. On January 30, 2019, the Arkansas Supreme Court ordered a new trial because he was a juvenile at the time of the shooting. He died in prison on February 9, 2019.

Lieutenant Worrell was survived by his expectant wife and two sons. His daughter was born the following September.

Lieutenant Worrell, thank you for your service.

Coronavirus Disease 2019 (COVID-19) Information | Texarkana, TX - Official Website

JOINT OPERATIONS CENTER- Media Briefing 4-20-20 3:15 p.m.
TEXARKANA, TX—Bowie County Emergency Operations Center reports a total of 83 positive COVID-19 cases, with six related deaths. Cass County has a total of 13.

Confirmed COVID-19 Cases in Bowie County (as of 4/20/20)

Total Cases in Bowie County

83

For a detailed report, please visit www.coronatxk.org. The EOC is working with local healthcare providers to bring you the most accurate and up-to-date information possible, so more data will be reported as it becomes available.

Many calls have been coming in to the EOC seeking clarification regarding the Governor’s statements over the weekend in regards to “opening Texas back up”, and while officials and authorities in Texarkana are anxious to do that, it is important to remain cautious at this time. As a reminder, the following local restrictions are still in place:

Bowie County Shelter-in-Place Order effective until 11:59 p.m. on April 30, 2020
City of Texarkana, Texas Curfew in place until further notice beginning at 10:00 p.m. and lasting until 6:00 a.m.
Cass County Stay-at-Home Order effective until 11:59 p.m. on April 30, 2020
Various statewide restrictions issued by Governor Greg Abbott
Positive cases are also reported on the State of Texas Health and Human Services Department website (https://txdshs.maps.arcgis.com/apps/opsdashboard/index.html#/ed483ecd702b4298ab01e8b9cafc8b83) but often there is a delay in reporting by the State. Our local Emergency Operations Center is working with healthcare providers and private testing centers, so often times positive cases are identified locally at the same time that the state is notified. Therefore, positive cases are delayed being posted to the state’s website. For this most up-to-date positive case count, visit http://coronatxk.org.

Inmates at Barry B. Telford Correctional Facility who test positive are NOT included in the Bowie County case numbers. The local Emergency Operations Center is working with the administration of the Telford unit to understand the emergency plans for the facility, but case counts are kept separately. A Telford unit positive case count can be found at: https://www.tdcj.texas.gov/covid-19/offender_mac.html

The Salvation Army has recently received many requests for food. To answer this call, the Salvation Army has opened a “Neighbor to Neighbor” drive thru donation intake / distribution center. This center opened today and will stay open as long as there is community support and a strong need. The center is located at the Family Store at 420 Walton Dr. Texarkana, Texas. Please note: The store will NOT be open for business. Those who are in need of food should call 870-774-2701. Some contact information will be required for participation, and a day/time to pick up food will be assigned.

It is important during this time to remember the need for blood is not diminished. Please continue to donate blood during this crisis, as accidents and emergencies are still happening, and the need for blood is still present. LifeShare Blood Center is relying on donors to visit its network of donor centers across Louisiana, Texas, and Arkansas. Each donor center is operating on extended hours due to the COVID-19 crisis. To schedule a donation, call (903) 794-3173.

There are several local resources for those in need of food. A list of those resources can be found here: https://harvestregionalfoodbank.org/food-assistance/

Cass County asks individuals who have tested positive, or their healthcare providers, to report positive cases to the Emergency Management Coordinator at (903) 796-7973.

This outbreak of COVID-19 (Coronavirus) can be stressful. Fear and anxiety about a disease can be overwhelming and cause strong emotions in adults and children. Coping with stress will make you, the people you care about, and your community stronger. If you or someone you know is struggling with mental health, reach out. You can visit https://www.cdc.gov/coronavirus/2019-ncov/daily-life-coping/managing-stress-anxiety.html for more information, or call the Disaster Distress at 1-800-985-5990, or text TalkWithUs to 66746.

SMPD Officer Killed, 2 Others Wounded Saturday Eve

A man fatally shot a City of San Marcos police officer and wounded two others this evening at Twin Lake Villas Apartments, 2917 Hunter Rd. Police report that the suspect is deceased from an apparent self-inflicted gunshot wound.

A call to 911 for an assault/domestic disturbance was received at 6:05 p.m. and officers responded to the incident at the apartment complex. During the course of their response, the suspect ambushed the officers with a rifle.

“We are heartbroken to make this announcement,” said Interim Police Chief Bob Klett. “We ask for your support for our fellow officers and their families as we try to cope with yet another tragic event in our San Marcos Police family”

The two surviving officers were transported to Ascension Seton Hays in Kyle where they have undergone surgery. All families have been notified.

This is the second line of duty death for the San Marcos Police Department since Officer Kenneth Copeland was shot and killed while serving a warrant on December 4, 2017.

To the police officers of Wake Village, I thank you and I appreciate everything you do! ❤️
It's 2:39 AM on Thursday, 9 April 2020. I'm sitting in my office getting some much needed work done and out my front window, looking out into the culdesac, I notice a bright light moving slowly up the hill on my street, with side lights shining and the top LED's shining very brightly. The officer slowly made his way around my culdesac as I got up from my desk to see what was going on. I spied one of Wake Villages finest, out doing his job looking out to make sure no ill will was coming our way by hoodlems or anyone not living up here on our hill. So kudo's to WVPD! I'm happy to be associated with you as a member of the City Council for the last seven years, and hopefully well into the future. Wake Village is the best! Way to go WVPD! I'm thankful there are first responders like you on the job protecting the citizens of Wake Village. Nowhere have I lived in the past where I've felt more safe during these strange times we're living in right now. Thanks again and keep up the good work!
This was at 3:30 today. Both dogs are out again in a cage together, no blankets, water or food. The little brown dog is behind the bigger white dog. I heard a dog crying and just followed the direction of the cries. It's 44 degrees out but according to weather feels like 38. I have called a couple of times now in the past few weeks and asked if something could be done? I have sent this photo to Texarkana Humane Society today to ask for help. While they are not chained out, they are not able to move either..This is the blue house, front unit, in the 800 block of Guam St.It's been an hour and the dogs are still outside in the cage.
We can't burn on the ground here in the Village right? Our neighbors @ 201 W Greenfield Dr are, right now.
Our dogs dug out after I thought I had it fixed this evening. Hershey is home safe but my baby girls baby Teddy Bear is still missing. PLEASE if you are in the wake village area (especially around Wake Forest Dr.) and you see her, call or text 9037327428! She is 15 lbs and does not currently have a collar as her sister chewed it off. She is very sweet and shy.
Just a reminder your Halloween is not complete without stopping by the Wake Village City Hall/Police Department for candy and to meet Wake Village Police, Fire and City Employees!!! 🕵🏻‍♂️🕵🏻‍♂️🚒🧛🏻‍♂️👻👮🏼‍♂️🍫🤖🧙🏻‍♀️🧟‍♀️☠️
Y'all need to be aware the kids are getting out early today some of the school zone lights are flashing and some are not. And the lights are out at Richmond Road and I-30 it's a four-way stop now people learn how to do it!
Just curious as to why the school zone lights are flashing on Redwater Road and the crossing guard is out and only that school zone's lights are flashing? And not the ones on Wake village road?
Nice to b recognized as a badge bunny😂😂😂😂
We're not allowed to mow our yard at 10 o'clock at night, right?
We're cars stolen this morning or yesterday?
