David Parker, Investigator TAPD

November Partner Spotlight ~ David Parker, Investigator TAPD

David was Born and raised in New Boston Tx and second generation law enforcement. Davis spent 12 years in the United States Air Force Security Forces where he achieved the rank of Staff Sargeant. I have worked with TAPD for 4 years after my separation from the Air Force. David enjoys spending his time off from the PD with his boys at the football fields! David is a huge asset to the Texarkana Children’s Advocacy Center, his passion and drive is evident in every case he works on. David has become an amazing investigator and a major asset to our organization and he deserves to feel appreciated and recognized for how hard he works on these cases, and these cases are the most difficult to work. We are grateful to have you as part of our MDT team fighting child abuse alongside our organization and providing justice for children who can’t fight for themselves.
