Several Bowie County Police Departments have closed to the public because of COVID-19. They are New Boston, Nash and Wake Village. Texarkana, Arkansas Police Departments, and Bowie Couty Sheriff’s Office in the Bi-State Building remain open, but a mask is required. They are handling Emergency, life-threatening, or “in progress” calls for service in the same manner as always. Officers will be required to wear gloves and masks while attempting to avoid as much contact as possible with the victim/suspect. The presence of officers in the city will not change.
