VPD uses billboards to fight crime

March 4, 2008

Valdosta - Valdosta police are using the city's newest technology to help fight crime.

They've teamed up with Magic Media and Wednesday morning will test a new crime alert system on one of Valdosta's electronic billboards.

The alert system will allow police to post pictures and information about wanted criminals and missing children.

They hope posting it for all drivers to see many lead to more tips and help them close a case.

They'll test the billboard on Norman Drive Wednesday morning at 10:00.
