Valdosta - Police officers in one South Georgia city have a new automatic ticket system to help them do their jobs more efficiently.

Valdosta police are now using the Quickticket computer system. They can run a license check and print a traffic citation all from their patrol car.

Officers say the new system will save valuable time. "It adds onto our existing computers in the car and enhances that, which in turn improves service to the citizens. The officer's in and our of the car quicker and can go catch an emergency call should something else arise," said Sgt. Earl Durrance.

The Quickticket system is currently installed in about 70 Valdosta patrol cars.
