Valdosta -- Lowndes County's 911 center is one of only four in Georgia who holds the honor of accreditation by the Commission on Accreditation for Law Enforcement Agencies.

It attained accreditation in 2003, and now an assessment team is back in town to make sure they're still upholding the standards they met three years ago.

The team will spend five days at the center, reviewing everything from policies and procedures to technology use, dispatch ability and ethics.

"It means we've met a professional level of performance that the taxpayers of Lowndes County would expect us to do and we try to do our very best with the resources the taxpayers give us to pay for the operations here," said 911 Center Director Nick Lacey.

The assessment team wants community feedback before they complete their review. They're holding a public information session tonight at the Lowndes County Commissioners Office at 7:00.
