The Challenge

In 2021, Georgia Governor Kemp announced a significant capital allocation to Georgia Law Enforcement Agencies. He furthered his commitment to Georgia's law enforcement officers and announced over $5.6 million in law enforcement training grants. Crisp County Sheriff's office was one of those 46 agencies. The total for all grants being distributed statewide is $5.6 million. As a result of this capital commitment, Crisp County Sheriff's Office was looking for a simulator that could help their deputies prepare for the various situations and incidents that can take place on any given day.

The Solution

After significant research on the various training simulators available for law enforcement training, Crisp County Sheriff's Office ultimately decided on moving into the future and ditching the legacy based projector simulators. Crisp County is using its funds for an Apex Officer Training Simulator, which offers interactive, hands-on training that uses specific scenario-based examples. The Apex Officer System provides interactive testing and assessment and immersive, hands-on scenario-based exercises with detailed debriefing and after-action reviews. The system is designed to increase knowledge, skills, and confidence in a safe, challenging, interactive, and engaging environment.

The Results

Crisp County Sheriff’s Office purchase of the Apex Officer Training Simulator through grant funding will allow officers sworn/detention within Crisp County and many surrounding agencies to be trained with immersive, hands-on scenario-based exercises. As we released early last year, "Apex Officer is expanding its footprint in the state of Georgia." As a result of this expansion effort, Apex Officer quickly became the top VR simulator in use by Georgia police departments and law enforcement agencies. Municipal police departments, sheriff's offices and Georgia law enforcement agencies experienced firsthand improvements in their officer's de-escalation tactics and ability to perform in high-pressure situations.
