Valdosta - 22 Chinese delegates visit Valdosta to study American government and public safety.
The group is from Xining and today was learning about public safety.
They say their police are government run and are hard to get a hold of. They are seeing how we run things here, and how they could set up similar policies back home.
"They are seeing this as an opportunity to learn the intimate details of how a police department is run on a day-to-day basis," says Valdosta City Manager Larry Hanson.
They'll leave Valdosta Saturday and head to Washington D-C, New York and Las Vegas before returning home.
