VSU Corporal Winningham honored by Valdosta Police

Valdosta State University Police Corporal Gerald D. Winningham (center) was honored recently by the City of Valdosta Police Department with a VPD Challenge Coin for his role in helping Valdosta Police solve a series of robberies that occurred in September. Winningham was on patrol and heard a lookout. He spotted a vehicle matching the description and obtained a tag number of a car that eventually led to an arrest. Pictured with Winningham are Captain Brian Childress (left) of the Valdosta Police Department and Chief Scott Doner of the Valdosta State University Police Department.
