Valdosta plans to honor Law Enforcement

LOWNDES CO., GA (WALB) - The Valdosta-Lowndes Community is planning to come together to celebrate law enforcement.

On Wednesday, the city and the county will be partnering to celebrate National Law Enforcement Appreciation Day.

The event will be honoring the police departments across the county, the sheriff’s department, Georgia State Patrol and the Department of Public Safety.

“We’re just going to honor our law enforcement, say thank you for all of the hard work they do every single day because a lot of it goes unnoticed throughout the year," said City Spokesperson Ashlyn Becton.

The event will take place Wednesday morning on the historic courthouse lawn, near the corner of Patterson Street and Central Avenue at 11:30 a.m.

Organizers are asking that everyone planning to attend, wear blue.
