WYOMING COUNTY, WV (WOAY) – Several months ago, the Wyoming County Sheriff’s Department applied for a grant through the state to get its vehicles retrofitted for canines.
That grant, worth $3,000, has been approved to assist, with the county offering an additional $300. The County Commission signed off on the grant this morning.”
“It’s $3,000,” said Chief Deputy Bradley Ellison. “I’m pretty sure the cost of retrofitting them was about $8,000 for two vehicles, but it helps in deferring the cost.”
The Sheriff’s Department will start training with the canines in early December.
