Release from the Valdosta Police Department

VALDOSTA – Since the ambush of Valdosta Police Officer Randall Hancock on July 8, 2016, the citizens of Valdosta/Lowndes County have gone out of their way to show their support for the members of the Valdosta Police Department and all law enforcement officers. We would like to thank all those persons and organizations who generously donated food and sent well wishes and thank you cards to the grateful members of this department:

    I am grateful for the law enforcement we have in Valdosta and Lowndes County. I have worked an early shift with Winn Dixie (Five Points) for over 15 years and have passed a number of officers in the early hours of the morning. Some have passed through our parking lot during the 5-6am hours. I appreciate all you for your service to making our community a great place to live. I will continue to pray for you. If you should pass through the parking lot and see me walking to or sitting in front of the store, stop and give me the opportunity to meet and pray with you.
