Police officers in Fort Myers, Florida, use virtual reality to better work under pressure and prepare them for the worst. The simulation places police officers in life-threatening situations such as learning to deal with addicts and citizens with mental problems.
From the feel of a taser to the ability to converse with a virtually aggressive person. The aim of the training is to calm down the aggressive person and prevent escalation in the correct way.
According to Fort Myers Police, the virtual simulation is as realistic as it can get in a cop’s everyday life. The Fort Myers Police Department is one of two agencies now using this technique. More Florida departments will eventually follow.
