Police Departments in Idaho Turn to Virtual Reality for Training

Apex Officer provides Idaho police with VR technology for de-escalation training.

Police departments and law enforcement agencies in the state of Idaho are turning to virtual reality training developed by Apex Officer to cover a wide array of training. The Lewiston Police Department recently partnered with Apex Officer, the leading provider of virtual reality training simulators for police departments and law enforcement agencies, to implement a new virtual reality training program to better prepare their officers. The resource will explore how the training is being used and the implications it has for police training across the state of Idaho.

Why police departments in Idaho are turning to virtual reality for training

Police departments in Idaho were faced with a serious problem. How do you train your officers to de-escalate situations and keep the community safe? You might think that you can use a video to show the officers but not all stressful situations are easily captured on video. That's why the Lewiston Police Department decided to use virtual reality technology to train their officers and keep the community safe.
