TAPD to host Youth to Leadership Pride Camp Aug. 5


TEXARKANA — The Texarkana Arkansas Police Department (TAPD) is hosting their Youth to Leadership Pride Camp on Wednesday, Aug. 5.

The camp will be held at Crossties at 324 East Broad Street from 10:00 a.m. to 7:00 p.m.

The Pantry Shack will come in and help the TAPD with making 30,000 meals for Texarkana area residents, which will break the Arkansas record for 2020.

The Texarkana Arkansas police invite residents to come to Crossties and check out the community outreach event.

2020 will mark the first time in the nine years of the Pride Academy that they will be unable to have the camp in its traditional format. Instead of nixing the event entirely, a group of TAPD past pride graduates and youth leadership teens have partnered with the police to continue to give back to the community.
