Texas Police Departments Utilize Virtual Reality Training Simulators

Law enforcement agencies in the state of Texas are beginning to utilize VR training simulators.

In an effort to improve the quality of policing, law enforcement agencies in Texas are beginning to utilize virtual reality training simulators. The simulators allow officers to practice various scenarios that may arise while on the job, and can also be used to teach new techniques. In addition, the simulators allow officers to work together in a safe environment, which can help to improve cooperation and communication.

Not too long ago, the only people that had the privilege of experiencing virtual reality training were those who were in the military. Now, these training platforms can be found in police departments across the country. Law enforcement agencies in the state of Texas are beginning to utilize virtual reality training simulators to prepare their officers for the job.

Victoria 100 Club Donates VR Simulator to Victoria Police Department

The Victoria 100 club made a generous donation to the Victoria Police Department allowing them to purchase the Apex Officer virtual reality training simulator. In a recent interview with Crossroads Today, Victoria 100 club board member, Cally Fromme says it’s incredible to see officers use this tech training technology because they are learning how to quickly react to unique situations.

“Some of the board members went through the simulation ourselves and it’s incredible to go through the training,” she said. “Just seeing how quick officers must react to different scenarios. Those scenarios can change just second by second.”

VPD Officer David Brogger is very appreciative of the generous donation from the Victoria 100 Club and he is glad officers can stay up to date on realistic training scenarios with this technology.

Victoria Police Department anticipates this technology will also help surrounding law enforcement agencies. VPD Officer Brogger went on to say, “this is an extremely beneficial training tool which has already been used. Not only by our department, but we’ve also invited surrounding departments to come use it as well."

"The entire Apex Officer team is excited for the opportunity to work with the Victoria Police Department and we would like to say thank you to the Victoria 100 Club for making this possible," said Chase Dittmer, President of Apex Officer. "With the help of a generous donation from the Victoria 100 Club, we have the opportunity to be of service to the brave men and women of the Victoria Police Department and provide them with the latest and greatest training technology."
