Valdosta -- The Valdosta/Lowndes County 911 Center has received sixteen new standards from the Commission on Accreditation for Law Enforcement.

 The agency hopes these issuing these practices will both increase the standards of law enforcement agencies and keep them up to date with the latest technologies.

 The standards include new procedures for the collection of DNA evidence at a crime scene and cold cases. Valdosta police are working to have the new standards in compliance by the end of the year.

"I can tell you that of these 16 new standards, the police department is already in compliance with nine of these," said Police Captain Brian Childress.

The Valdosta Police Department has been accredited since 1999 and the Lowndes County 911 Center since 2003.

The center is one of only three accredited communications centers in the state of Georgia.
