VR Police Training Process

Apex Officer's VR training process is highly regarded as one of the best police and law enforcement training simulators in the industry.


Every Apex Officer training simulation starts with background information and case law. Our simulations provide the police officer with a plethora of background knowledge including the legal definition, what the precedent is, why it is important and much more.


Following the intro and case law, every officer using the Apex Officer training platform is placed into a randomized training scenario that depict a variety of situations. Officers will demonstrate knowledge of the training material and new skills.


After every Apex Officer training simulation, each officer goes through a debriefing session with an instructor or subject matter expert. In the debriefing, the officer articulates his decision making process and reflects on his/her decision and the areas that they can improve upon.

Frequently Asked Questions

Why are VR training simulators better than projector based training simulators?

Unlike earlier use of force instructional methods and simulators, such as range shooting, Apex Officer's virtual reality use of force training simulator is designed to provide more realistic training and covers a broader range of use of force options.

Why are police departments retiring their projector simulators and switching to VR training simulators like Apex Officer?

Police departments are increasingly retiring their projection simulators and are switching to VR platforms like Apex Officer for many reasons. VR (Virtual Reality) training simulators offer several advantages over projector-based training simulators, including:

  1. Realistic Environments: VR training simulators offer realistic environments that closely replicate real-world scenarios, allowing trainees to experience situations as if they were actually there.
  2. Interactive Training: VR training simulators allow trainees to interact with the simulated environment in real-time, making decisions and experiencing the consequences. This level of interactivity is not possible with projector-based training simulators, which typically offer a more passive training experience.
  3. Safe and Controlled Environment: VR training simulators provide a safe and controlled environment for trainees to practice skills and make mistakes without the risk of injury or damage to property. Projector-based training simulators, on the other hand, can pose a risk to trainees and property if they are not used properly.
  4. Repetitive Training: VR training simulators allow trainees to repeat scenarios as many times as necessary to master the skills being taught. This is not possible with projector-based training simulators, which often require a significant amount of setup time between scenarios.
  5. Cost-Effective: VR training simulators can be more cost-effective than projector-based training simulators over the long term.

What are the benefits of virtual reality training?
