Odessa College Law Enforcement Training Academy to use VR simulator for a real-life situation

The simulator allows Law Enforcement officers to train on responding to high-stress circumstances in realistic scenes.

The Odessa College Law Enforcement Training Academy has launched a new technology for Law Enforcement officers to hone their skills through VR. 

The officers will use the VirTra V-100 simulator that enables users to train on responding to high-stress environments like domestic violence, active shooters, and many others in locations like a courthouse, a school campus, or a movie theatre.

William Misczak, the training coordinator at the Law Enforcement Training Academy, stated that the simulator would help these officers decide whether they are on the correct path.

“We feel it’s very important, again it gives the student the opportunity if they need to make that decision of whether this is for me or not for me because it’s giving them real-life based scenarios.” – William Misczak. 

Situational results depend on the actions of the law enforcement officer and occur in real-time. The system also rebuilds the psychological stressors that officers might face in reality.
