BOWLING GREEN, Ky. (WBKO) -- The Warren County Sheriff's Office has received accreditation from the Kentucky Association of Chiefs of Police.

In fiscal court Friday morning, Sheriff Jerry "Peanuts" Gaines got an award representing the accomplishment, which makes it the fifth sheriff's office of 120 counties in the state to get that accreditation.

Now, all law enforcement departments in Warren County have it.

Officials from the Bowling Green Police Department and Western Kentucky University's Police Department were there to congratulate the sheriff.

"We've been working on this for 11 months. It means that us, Western, Bowling Green city police are all accredited now -- one of the few. It helps the insurance rate. It helps your credibility. It's just the epitome of -- you're there, you know what I mean -- we worked so long and now we've got there," said Sheriff Jerry "Peanuts" Gaines.

The accreditation lasts five years before the department will have to apply again to keep it.
