Tour Tyler Texas - Texas Pride TV - M1Y - Empowerment Community Development Corporation by Clarence Edmond Shackelford community publicist in East Texas since 1985:

It’s National Police Week, and Tour Tyler Texas wants to take this opportunity to share our appreciation for all of our law enforcement officers. Being a part of the Thin Blue Line was never easy, but it’s gotten even more complicated in recent years. As a result, our communities have become less safe. In 2022, homicide rates went up by 48 percent, aggravated assaults and domestic violence incidents increased by 4 percent, and car theft increased by 14 percent.
