PINEVILLE, WV (WVNS) — The Wyoming County Sheriff’s Department received the green light to transform cruisers to fit new K-9s. Chief Deputy Bradley Ellison said they received $3,000 from a community participation grant program and it was approved on Wed., Oct 7, 2020 during a county commission meeting.
Ellison said this will help with the cost of preparing for the two new K9s the department is receiving in the next few months.
“We got a German bird dog that’s going to be used as a tracker and a drug dog. And then we got a Belgian malinois that’s going to be a patrol dog,” Ellison said.
Ellison told 59News they are looking at having the dogs start with the department sometime in December 2020.
