Corrections Officer Training Simulator

Apex Officer is the premier VR training simulator for corrections officers and correctional facilities.

Working in a correctional institution can be stressful and dangerous. Correctional officers and jailers have one of the highest rates of injuries and illnesses of all occupations, often resulting from confrontations with inmates. Officers work in shifts that cover all hours of the day and night, including weekends and holidays.

VR Training Simulator for Correctional Officers

Apex Officer utilizes the best virtual reality hardware and technology to create the world’s most realistic and immersive correctional officer training simulator on the market.

Unlike other training simulators, correctional institutions utilizing Apex Officer aren't limited to what you can display on a 2D projection screen. With Apex Officer, the corrections officer is transported in a 360-degree virtual environment that looks, feels, interacts identically to a real-world situation.

Apex Officer Partners with Correctional Institutions and Agencies

The Apex Officer team works closely with our law enforcement and corrections partners to ensure our training content is superior in quality, realism, immersion, and relevance.

With the feedback from our partners, our software developers are able to create intense, realistic scenarios, which are displayed using the best virtual reality technology. With our unique blend of randomization, artificial intelligence and voice recognition Apex Officer's training scenarios and simulations offer correctional facilities and their officers an infinite number of training opportunities.

Correctional Officer Training Need

The Federal Bureau of Prisons mission is to protect public safety by ensuring that federal offenders serve their sentences of imprisonment in facilities that are safe, humane, cost-efficient, and appropriately secure, and provide reentry programming to ensure their successful return to the community.

The Federal Bureau of Prisons employs over 35,000 employees. As of 2021, the Bureau of Prisons is responsible for the custody and care of 155,826 inmates. The Federal BOP employees ensure the security of federal prisons and provide inmates with programs and services that model mainstream values.

The U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics anticipates that overall employment of correctional officers and bailiffs is projected to decline 7 percent from 2020 to 2030. Additionally, despite declining employment, about 35,700 openings for correctional officers and bailiffs are projected each year, on average, over the decade. All of those openings are expected to result from the need to replace workers who transfer to other occupations or exit the labor force, such as to retire.
