TEXARKANA, AR (KSLA) - The Texarkana, AR Police Department hosted its annual Cops and Kids meal Tuesday night at the Four States Fair Grounds.

Officers met at the station at 5 p.m. to form two convoys. One parade went to the Texarkana Baptist Orphanage and the other to the Watersprings Ranch.

The children rode with an officer in a patrol car, with lights and sirens, to
The Fair Grounds.

Police say the Annual Cops and Kids program is done in a spirit of fellowship that takes place during the holiday season and it is meant to reinforce the aspects of community and police relationships.

Police greeted and fed about 60 kids.
