Police Officers in Michigan Benefit from Apex Officer's VR Training Simulator

Apex Officer is bringing VR training to Michigan police officers and law enforcement agencies.

Virtual Reality (VR) technology has already revolutionized flight training and has begun to find its way into almost every industry imaginable. With the new incoming generation of VR headsets, more users are able to experience the immersive opportunities provided by this new medium. However, it's not all fun and games. Many businesses, and government agencies are using VR to provide better training to their staff.

As the Department of Justice renews its focus on de-escalation training for law enforcement, there is a need for innovative tools and programs to help officers train and improve their de-escalation skills. One of the most promising and innovative solutions is Apex Officer®, which enables officers to engage and interact with virtual characters and practice de-escalation and use of force scenarios.

Apex Officer, the leading provider of VR training simulators for law enforcement, military, and first responders has announced that they're expanding their footprint in the state of Michigan and are bringing the Apex Officer virtual reality training simulator to police officers and law enforcement agencies across the state.

"Apex Officer is a game-changer for police training technology and is transforming the face of law enforcement training in the State of Michigan," said Chase Dittmer, President of Apex Officer.

We want to help protect the people that protect us."
