NEWELL, W.Va. (AP) - K-9 units from across West Virginia are in Hancock County for the 20th annual West Virginia Police Canine Association training seminar.

The Weirton Daily Times (https://bit.ly/1p4dKZD ) reports that the convention is being held at Tomlinson Run State Park and sites in New Manchester and Newell. Nearly 70 K-9 units from Huntington, Charleston and elsewhere are in attendance.

The convention is required for K-9 units to be certified or get their annual recertification.

Among the training sessions are those dealing with narcotics, tracking work and explosives.

The participating dogs include bloodhounds from the West Virginia Division of Forestry, as well as narcotics, bomb-sniffing and patrol dogs from city police departments.

The public will have a chance to see the dogs during a special demonstration Wednesday at Tomlinson Run.
