VALDOSTA, GA (WALB) - The Georgia Sheriff's Association says it's crucial that the state's law enforcers stay up to date on recent law changes and new equipment. That's exactly what they've done this week in Valdosta.

Over 100 sheriffs came to the Association's tri-annual training seminar. They say it's the best way to make sure all 159 sheriff's in the state know the latest laws and legislation.

 "The training session allows us to stay current on laws, and allow us to interact with other sheriffs, to find out issues they may be having verses issues we have," said Mike Jolley, President of the Georgia Sheriff's Association. 

Governor Sonny Perdue will speak to the Sheriff's meeting Wednesday night. Training will end Thursday at noon.
