Valdosta billboard could help community

January 18, 2007

Valdosta - Law Enforcement Agencies in Valdosta and Lowndes County have a new tool when searching for wanted criminals or issuing an Amber Alert.

This bright billboard's LED lights shine 24 hours a day and if your driving by, it's hard not to notice.

It was just put in along North Valdosta Road and the closest billboard like it is in Tallahassee.

On top of advertising, local law enforcement can use it whenever needed free of charge.  "A good thing about it is it helps with the community if there are any community events or anything that impacts the community such as Amber alerts," says Lindi Soles from Lamar Advertising.

They hope to have two more in Valdosta by the end of the year.  One should be moving into Albany in the next 3 months.
