FLATWOODS, W.Va. (WSAZ) -- Sheriffs from around the state of West Virginia are in Flatwoods learning the ins and outs of their jobs. Some are just busing up on old skills and procedures.
At the start of 2013 there are 35 new sheriffs across the state of W.Va.
Cabell County Sheriff Tom McComas is leading the event. He is the president of the West Virginia Sheriff's Association.
The election to the post means he will serve on several state committees that deal with issues that affect your families and members of law enforcement.
The event wraps up on Tuesday.
