Congratulations to the Valdosta citizens who, after many weeks of behind-the-scenes training with the Valdosta Police Department (VPD), graduated from the 28th Citizens Police Academy on November 8. Interim Chief of Police Leslie Manahan presented each graduate with a certificate and a police department bag. The program, which is offered in the spring and the fall, is designed to educate citizens and the business community about the services provided by the VPD and to establish a community partnership. The next CPA will start in April 2019. Interested citizens should contact Capt. Kari Williams at 229-293-3099 for an application.
