Sheriffs from across the state visit Morgantown for educational conference

MORGANTOWN — Sheriffs from around the state are visiting Morgantown for the 2018 West Virginia Sheriffs’ Association Conference at Lakeview Golf Resort and Conference Center.
“It’s an honor,” Monongalia County Sheriff Perry Palmer said of hosting the event, which started Sunday and ends today.
West Virginia law requires the state auditor to provide training on tax issues to sheriffs in the state, Rodney Miller, executive director of the West Virginia Sheriffs’ Association, said.
He said the conference also offers law enforcement training in order to be more efficient and to not have to pull sheriffs’ out of their counties multiple times.
