Captain Glenn Greenwell Retirement

Capt. Glenn Greenwell’s career in Law Enforcement began in November of 1975 with the Texarkana Arkansas Police Department and he worked his way up through the ranks making Captain in October of 1999.  During his law enforcement tenure Capt. Greenwell left TAPD in May of 1984 for approximately 3 years to serve as Chief of Police for De Kalb Police Department. Captain Glen Greenwell served the majority of his time as the Services Division Commander responsible for the administrative function of the agency.  This included TAPD’s operating budget, personnel, training, risk management, internal affairs, computer services, radio communications, wireless mobile data support, technical services, grant management, fleet management, airport police services, court security, corrections, and logistical services support to the other department divisions. Captain Glenn Greenwell holds a Master’s Degree from Texas A&M University-Texarkana.  He has received many awards throughout his career including Police Commendation, Officer of the Quarter, Educational and Advanced Certificate, and many letters of commendation and appreciation in his files. Chief Bob Harrison said all of these professional accomplishments and accolades, pale in comparison to the real impact Captain Greenwell has had on the men and women of this agency. Glenn has been a very competent, dedicated professional, and personal friend that will be missed.  We will all greatly miss his contribution to the Texarkana Arkansas Police Department and to the City of Texarkana, Arkansas.  We wish him well as he transitions to the next phase in his lifetime of retirement.

The Needed Connection of Arkansas High to Arkansas Stadium

Texarkana, AR- Anyone who has ever attended Arkansas High and had to walk from the school to the stadium or from the stadium to the school knows the dangers faced by a student.  While students are fortunate to have a stadium so close to the main high school campus, they are also hindered by no direct, safe route to walk to the stadium. Nix Creek effectively blocks any direct access to the stadium for students.  The best students can do is walk down Nix Creek trail and then cross the bridge on 18th street where they are exposed to traffic from both directions.  During game nights this traffic can range anywhere from a few cars to hundreds of cars flooding up and down the street.
