SUMMERSVILLE – The ballfields of the Nicholas County Veteran Memorial Park are one of the various locations playing host to the West Virginia Police Canine Association’s yearly training seminar and recertification events.

Approximately 71 K-9 teams from throughout the state have traveled to the event which is being hosted by members of the Nicholas County Sheriff’s Department and the Summersville Police Department this year.

“It gets our certifications up so when we are working our dogs, we’re a certified team,” said Sgt. Matt Deitz of the Nicholas County Sheriff’s Department adding that the certification is key to being recognized by the courts as an adequate K-9 unit.
