Florida Law Enforcement Agencies Excel With VR Training

Law Enforcement agencies in the state of Florida implement immersive VR training simulators.

Virtual reality training simulators are on the rise for police departments and military forces across the country, and some law enforcement agencies in Florida are leading the way. Apex Officer's virtual reality training simulators are allowing agencies to train their officers on everything from terror events to active shooters.

Law enforcement agencies in the state of Florida are beginning to implement immersive virtual reality training simulators in order to help officers learn how to deal with dangerous situations. The simulators allow officers to experience different scenarios, ranging from hostage negotiations to high-speed chases. This type of training has been found to be more effective than traditional training methods, and can save officers' lives.

Deescalation Training in VR for Florida Police Officers

In a recent event hosted by Fort Myers Police Department, ABC News had the opportunity to check out Fort Myers Police Department's state-of-the-art VR training tool built by Apex Officer. They were given the chance to put themselves in uniform and try to de-escalate the situation. Each was given the decision of if and when they should pull the trigger. ABC7’s Gage Goulding got the chance to jump into the simulation as well. “What’s crazy though is the detail,” said Goulding. “The floor, I can see the reflection of the lights in the shooting range on the floor.”

VR Training Simulators are Providing Florida Law Enforcement Agencies The Following Benefits:

Police departments and law enforcement agencies in the state of Florida are ready for a new and innovative training tool to better prepare law enforcement officers to keep our communities safe. Virtual reality is here and it's better than ever thanks to Apex Officer's VR training platform.

  • VR training allows police officers to practice for the situations they encounter every day.
  • VR makes it easy for police officers to learn techniques and new tactics.
  • VR allows them to use their skills to make a real-life difference.

Police departments are using virtual reality to train officers for the situations they encounter every day. VR allows officers to learn techniques and new tactics in a safe environment, without putting themselves or the public at risk. VR also allows them to use their skills to make a real-life difference. For example, in a recent training exercise, a police officer used VR to disarm a gunman without harming any of the bystanders.


With this new technology, agencies are able to train their officers in an environment that is more realistic than ever before. This can help to reduce the number of accidents, injuries, and fatalities that often occur on the job.
