Valdosta police honored

October 30, 2007

Valdosta - The Valdosta Police Department is being recognized for their advancements in traffic technology.

The award was presented by the International Association of Chiefs of Police.

The police say they have been active in purchasing forensic mapping and other traffic technology which allows them to better recreate an accident and put traffic offenders behind bars.

"I'm real confident they are going to get to the bottom of what happened, can do accident reconstruction, accident diagrams and so on that are professional, accurate and admissible in court," says Commander Brian Childress with the Valdosta Police.

The Valdosta Police beat out over 500 agencies worldwide to get the award.
