VALDOSTA, Ga. (WTXL) - The Valdosta/Lowndes Regional Crime Laboratory went through an inspection Friday.

The Valdosta/Lowndes Regional Crime Laboratory was inspected by the ANSI-ASQ National Accreditation Board for compliance with professional crime laboratory operating standards and procedures.

The board found the laboratory was in compliance and no issues were noted.

“We have said from day one that our local crime laboratory would be accredited to ensure we comply with professional crime laboratory standards. Yet again Director Becky Parker-Hall, Quality Manager Julie Grantham, and all laboratory staff proved not only the value of operating a local laboratory but the fact the laboratory follows the best practices available. Quite honestly, they are the best in the business which explains why other law enforcement agencies are now requesting the use of the lab; because of speed of turnaround and professional work”, stated Brian Childress.
