“Shoot or don’t shoot” training helps local law enforcement students

Local News

Following recent acts of violence around the country involving guns and police shooting,  a local law enforcement training facility aims to prepare students to handle these scenarios.

Local Five’s Jordan Lamers introduces us to a new police training simulator at Fox Valley Technical College in Appleton.

It’s called “Shoot or don’t shoot training,”  and it revolves around a new police simulator.

Here’s how it works: Students step up to a 180 degree screen that can project 800 different real-life training scenarios from domestic violence, to active shooters.

The teachers have the ability to fully control how the scenarios will play out, and bring them to life right in front of the student officer.

The class also takes real scenarios from past events, and lets students decide the outcome.

Instructors say it’s training like this that allows users to make those tough decisions long before it becomes real.

The simulator is included in the seven-hundred-and-twenty hours of training students must complete before graduation.
