W.Va. police officers get meth lab training


INSTITUTE, W.Va. (AP) -- More than 30 police officers from across West Virginia are learning how to detect and dismantle methamphetamine labs.

Media outlets report that Network Environmental Systems, Inc. of California is conducting a training session on meth this week at the West Virginia State Police Academy in Institute.

Officers will take a certification examination to become meth lab technicians.

State police spokesman Sgt. Michael Baylous says meth labs are becoming more common in West Virginia and more certified officers are needed to deal with the problem.

A federal grant is funding the training.
