The Texarkana Texas Police Department will be hosting the Region 7 annual conference of the International Conference of Police Chaplains at the Texarkana Texas Convention Center. The conference will be in town from Monday, April 23 to Thursday, April 26.
Hundreds of police chaplains will be staying with us next week at the Hilton Garden Inn on Cowhorn Creek and the surrounding hotels.
TTPD Public Information Officer Shawn Vaughn said,
Starting on Monday evening and going through Thursday afternoon, hundreds of police chaplains from across Texas, Arkansas, Louisiana, Oklahoma, Missouri, and Kansas will be in Texarkana completing training that will help them better serve their departments and communities. We are very excited about this as it is the first time that they have elected to come to Texarkana for this annual event.
