Valdosta --  Winnersville's police department unveils its new mobile command unit. The new $300,000 mobile command unit has a holding cell, dispatch capabilities, and camera units featured inside.

"We need some type of incident command where key leaders from different or organizations could together and have one source of information," said VPD Commander Brian Childress.

The command unit nicknamed "Miss Piggy" took a test drive this past weekend with officers giving breathalyzers at a road block in the city.
