A South Georgia sheriff's department receives funding for security improvements.

The Department of Justice has awarded the Lowndes County Sheriff's Department a $12,000 block grant. They plan on using the money to enhance video security equipment.

"We're going to put the money towards a $20,000 video system that will help us in burglaries and robberies," said Sheriff Ashley Paulk. "We'll be able to identify perpetrators much easier."

The city of Valdosta will hold a public hearing Wednesday afternoon at City Hall to discuss other methods of using the funds.
