Texarkana is a friendly place!

What a shock to get on my hometown forum and see such negative reports! I have to praise Texarkana for the response given to the many hurricane evacuee's during and since Katrina. So many worked endless hours feeing them alone. I'm certainly sorry one couple was treated badly, but overall we did a good job and will continue to help whenever and wherever we are needed. Texarkana is a GREAT place!

As safe as any larger city can be, safer than some. Didn't find last year's crime statistics, (for what they're worth) but did see 2007's. Texarkana had a lesser amount of crimes, for most of the categories, than a couple other large cities in our state.

Never had any problems when traveling thru there myself.
