The department is featured in Calea Magazine's October edition.

The magazine is distributed throughout Canada, Puerto Rico, and the U.S. It features accredited agencies and information on police department standards.

Valdosta's police department is highlighted as a success story with the accreditation process.

"It's good to have somebody every three years come in. Three people come in from the outside and take a look at us and review our policies and procedures, how we handle the use of force, how we handle vehicle pursuits, how we manage our money. We think that's good. It's an audit and that's really what it boils down to," said Valdosta Police CAPT Brian Childress.

The department is no stranger to the magazine. It was featured in the publication a little over a year ago as well.
