VPD strives for accreditation

VALDOSTA, GA (WALB) -

You have an opportunity to help decide whether the Valdosta Police Department will have its accreditation renewed.  

Members from Commissioners on Accreditation for Law Enforcement agencies will be in Valdosta next weekend to conduct a review of the police department.

On Monday, March 31st, the members will hold a meeting for the public to comment on the police department.  

"Law enforcement professionals come in and look at us and see if we're doing things right. In a lot of cases, they give us recommendations on how we can improve... this is a way for the citizens to go, 'okay, do we have the most professional law enforcement agency out there?'" asked Valdosta Police Chief Brian Childress.  

The meeting will be at 300 North Lee street in Valdosta at 6:00 pm on March 31st.
