Thomasville - A southwest Georgia police department is working hard to get recognized on a national level again. A decal on the Thomasville Police cars shows they have already been accredited by the Commission on Accreditation for Law Enforcement Agencies.

A national assessment team is in Thomasville this week to inspect the department. They have been accredited on a national level since 1987. Police Chief David Huckstep, says, "It is very difficult to get your national accreditation and then to keep it. That's why a lot of agencies don't go to the effort that it takes. There are over 700 standards we have to maintain, it sort of sets the bar."

Thomasville Police are expected to get an informal answer by Wednesday.
