I said it before, "STATE CERTIFICATION" more bang for your buck and less exepensive the accreditation.

I noticed that JD and Ashley traded in their Chargers R/T (not regular chargers, RT's are $40,000) for a Tahoe and and older Crown Vic, did Ashley buy the R/T and Tahoe liked he promised and as he started out 16 years ago? I wonder if he is still a $1.00 a year man like he promised years ago and will he be as chairman of the board...
Just wondering.

The Cost

Initial Accreditation Fees and On-Site Fees

An initial accreditation is due when an agency signs its Law Enforcement Accreditation Agreement. There are three payment options available: a lump sum, single payment, two installments, or three installments. The CALEA Accreditation Compliance Express (CACE) software program is included in the accreditation fees. CACE provides an agency a powerful tool to complete the steps necessary to achieve accredited agency status and serves as a valuable asset in the overall management of the CALEA Accreditation Process.

Once an agency receives its initial accreditation award, it pays an Annual Continuation Fee, which includes the estimated cost of its next on-site assessment. The following chart depicts current initial accreditation and continuation fees.

No. of Authorized
Full-Time Employees*

Lump-Sum
Payment
Annual Continuation Fee
(Annual Payments Include Estimated On-site Assessment Charge)
200-999
$13,075

Now I ask how is this cost effective if the department has to pay at least $13,075 a year to maintain the accreditation. It seems that a lot of you do not understand anything about the accreditation or it's process.

The only reason that Capt. Yeager spoke about a physical fitness rule is that some of the Capts. and Lts. that he wants to get rid of are older and overweight. Capt. Yeager thinks that if he mandates this weight and age program that he will find a way to get rid of the ones that he does not like. Only problem with this mandate of his is that is will have an affect on some of those special deputies that are backing him also .....

Like take for example his brother-in-law Herb Bennett. Capt. Bennett may be on the golf team with Capt. Yeager but if you compute his BMI (body mass index) you will find that it is over the recommended level for his height and weight (sorry Herb but you know it's true). Also Swain and Hightower are well over the weight BMI and would be booted out.

Capt. Yeager himself had the beergut thing going until he did not win the July 15th election and lost some weight this past few days. It just seems really funny that Chris Prine and others talk about fitness and point out that Capt. Yeager can't fire based on weight or age and suddenly Capt. Yeager developes a physical fitness plan.

I mean really he comes out in the Valdosta Daily Times with a physical fitness program just today when prior to today no one in the department has ever heard him mention a fitness plan? Come on Capt. Yeager when are you going to come up with an original idea of your own? Do you want Chris Prine to make up the physical fitness plan for you to? Down to how many laps and push-ups need to be done? Better yet.... how to put the beer can down and how to push away from the table?

If you want a real man with a plan then vote Chris Prine on August 5th. A man who does not bash people and has a plan already set out.

Vote Prine.August 5th.

There was no such meeting of this physical fitness, it came up and he addressed it. he has provided a weight room for those of us who use it. You cant make people go in and work out. If Prine is going to implement this then he needs to be the first one to sign in. Lead by example.

Physical Fitness Guru, i don't believe Mr.Bennett has been on here saying anything negative to you, therefore quit talking about him. i am sure if you wanted to say things to him he does go to the gym and work on physical fitness, not everyone is perfect like you. i think he goes to the gym daily. go talk to him yourself and quit hiding behind the computer. just like everyone else on here who slanders people with no reason. i mean really i hope poeple from other places read this and decide not to move here because you people on this website.

Yea vote prine look at his gut and he is very old. I would like to see you tell old herbie boy that to his face i am sure he could military press your 180lbs of shi- thru the ceiling.

By the way your man was in dasher thursday bashing the crap out of jd. Something the deputies might want to know,if chris is voted in he will not allow them to work off duty. and he is also telling people if someone gets put in jail they or their family will have to post a cash bond no more property bonds only rich people can liv by that. A lot of deputies depend on the off duty jobs to make their bills. Mr. Prine this is not the Georgia State Patrol. It has also been found out that Prine was part of the tac squad that he also so proudly displays on his web site, but what alot of you dont know is that squad were the ones when in 1970's beat the hell out of black people when they marched on the court house square ask him about that better yet go to the VDT and research it as i did its all there.

I will put Chris up against any of you on fitness. Not a one of you could follow him around for one day knocking on doors asking for votes in this heat.
By the way Jimmy Don that is the best way to get votes,not like you throwing Ashley's money away on that stupid ammount of tacky blue signs ALL over Lowndes County..

Actually....I see Capt. Herb Bennett on a daily basis. All he is talking about these days is the campaign of his brother-in-law Capt Yeager. Seems too that Capt. Bennett is worried and walking around talking about his own job security... we have all heard it in the office.

Bonus flash for you... if people google this topix.com site and put in the Valdosta name and read this site it won't be because of people like me that they refuse to move to Valdosta. It will be because of people like Capt. Yeager who ran such a dirty campaign and abused the taxpayers of Lowndes County to such a massive level.

I mean anybody who would air out their 20 year old divorce papers. Graciously put out there by their friends and sister. Get real! It makes us look like Red Neckville come to YouTube! Thanks J.D. Yeager and posse for making Valdosta look like a bunch of redneck backwoods loosers for the whole world to see. Your zeal and desire to win at any cost has gone beyond the scope of Lowndes County for the whole web to look in on. Thanks!!

Not true about the extra duty. Chris Prine knows that some of the deputies need the extra duty to supplement their incomes.

Chris Prine is going to allow extra duty to be worked by off duty deputies. This will include Wild Adventures, Football games, and other venues. Talk to him in person and you will find out... that is unless you just like to scare LCSO employees and start these senseless rumors. You know these intimidation tactics that Yeager and Paulk like to use... sound familiar to YOU?

As far as a person getting arrested... Chris Prine will do what the law states. This is what should have been done in the first place. Just because you work for the law does not mean you are ABOVE the law. This is something that Sheriff Paulk and Capt. Yeager seem to have forgotten somewhere along the line. It seems that they have given special favors to special people (we all know who if you work in the jail and booking department).

Chris Prine just wants to get back to equal treatment for ALL PEOPLE. Equal treatment for all regardless of age, race, job, or money, society status. Isn't that the way it should have been all along any way? Think about it? Chris Prine is just trying to get Lowndes County back to the actual LAW!!!

How can you argue with that?

Vote Chris Prine August 5th!!!

That's interesting, however, Capt. Yeager won't have to go meet every deputy and see what they do because he already knows. Capt. Yeager's door, as well as the Sheriff's, is always open for anyone that wants to talk or has a problem. I've never been over to that office that the door was shut unless he was in a private meeting with someone. You must have missed the part that Capt. Yeager has already formed a promotion board and a hiring board that the decision is determined by the majority of the votes. Capt. Yeager has more experience with the Sheriff's Office and this county than Chris Prine, he knows what it takes to run the jail, which I saw in the paper today that Chris Prine said has had never toured. Interesting that you want to be the Sheriff of this county and run the jail facility but you have never taken the time to go tour the facility to see what the problems are, he stated he had been told things, that is just hearsay. I don't want a Sheriff that will work on hearsay, I want one that deals with facts. Just because Prine worked for the state, doesn't mean he has the ability to run the county. It would take him learning from the people under him and that will take time before you would have a smooth running department. Instead, Capt. Yeager can walk in from day one and run everything without even a hiccup in the system.

The daugther issue and the ex-wife have nothing to do with who is best for sheriff of Lowndes County as far as their Law Enforcement resume.

The only problem that the daughter and ex-wife issue has brought up is that how you live your private life reflects oh so clearly in your public life. Capt. Yeager should have realized that once he entered the campaign for sheriff that his life became an open book for the taxpayers of Lowndes County.

Just as the Presidental candidates are having their lives torn apart bit by bit so it is for Capt Yeager and Chris Prine. Capt. Yeager is our ambassador to the state and will represent us if he is elected. If he thought his life would not be picked over with a fine tooth comb, then he was sadly mistaken.

Same thing goes for his resume and the fluffed up facts that he posted.. really when you state your resume you post what you ALONE have done. You don't post what you and others have done. I think that the people of Lowndes County have released that he fluffed up his resume and that flyer he mailed out.

By this point I am just feeling sorry for Capt. Yeager. However, I am still voting.....

Chris Prine August 5th!!

I noticed you said nothing of working the bars! be honest is he going to let them work the bars or did you leave that out on purpose!

As for as the cash bond issue peoplecan legally post cash or property bonds but I guess Prine does not have those of us that dont make the money he does on his mind.

Therre has been actual Law here,now you are picking on the poor deputies who risk their lives daily so that you may sleep in confort, come on get off them.
