So. Ga. P. D. recognized for outstanding service

November 21, 2002

Valdosta - A South Georgia police department is recognized for its outstanding service and protection.

The Valdosta Police Department has been re-accredited by the National Commission on Accreditation for Law Enforcement. Only 3 percent of U.S. police departments receive the recognition.

"This is extremely important to us because it lets the community know that we are doing a great job of serving and protecting them and our services are on a national level," said Chief Frank Simons.

Police departments undergo the accreditation process every three years. This is the second year the Valdosta Police department has been recognized.
