PORT ARTHUR, Texas (AP) - A park at the Port Arthur Sub-courthouse has been dedicated to a man who spent 57 years in law enforcement in Southeast Texas.

The Port Arthur News (https://bit.ly/1n4Y722 ) reports that Martin “Popeye” Holmes Park was dedicated Saturday. Friends, family and former colleagues gathered for the dedication. Holmes died in September at the age of 81.

A sign bearing his name sits on each side of the reflecting pool at the Port Arthur Sub-courthouse and letters spell his name on a pavilion.

His resume included the Port Arthur Police Department, Jefferson County Sheriff’s Office, Orange County Sheriff’s Office, Texas Alcohol and Beverage Commission, Groves Police Department and Bridge City Police Department.

Holmes’ tenure in law enforcement earned him the East Texas Peace Officers Association’s Award of Excellence in 2011.
