ISP Spokesman Sgt. Dennis Wade says the opening kicks off Monday. Wade says 165 teams from across the nation, in addition to Bermuda and Canada, are taking part in the week-long event. Wade says police work dog teams will participate in search and rescue, utility, explosives and drug scenarios for advanced training and certifications.
