Greenbrier County Sheriff’s Office Welcomes New Member

GREENBRIER COUNTY (News Release) – The Greenbrier County Sheriff’s office has welcomed a new addition to their ranks. A Belgian Malinois, named Layla, has become their newest member.

Cross trained in the detection of narcotics and tracking she will become a valuable asset in carrying out the mission of the agency. K-9’s have proven to be a valuable tool in the battle against the distribution of illegal narcotics and we are looking forward to the support she and Deputy Hudnall will be able to provide in those efforts.

Deputy Steve Hudnall and Layla graduated from training on Thursday, December 28, 2017. Deputy Hudnall stated, “ We have been given a very valuable tool to help us combat the illegal narcotic epidemic that is sweeping through our communities. When we take drugs off of the streets we are saving lives and helping to keep families together.”

The Greenbrier County Sheriff’s Office has been without the support of a K-9 from our own department for almost two years. During that time we have received K-9 assistance from the Lewisburg and Alderson Police Departments, as well as the WV State Police. We appreciate the support we have received from those agencies during the time period we were without our own K-9.
