New Training Simulator for Georgia Police Officers

Georgia police officers can now train for use of force and de-escalation in VR.

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 Georgia and are bringing the Apex Officer virtual reality training simulator.

Use of Force and De-escalation Training for Georgia Police Officers

With the national focus on de-escalation training and improving use of force training, law enforcement agencies across the state of Georgia and Apex Officer saw an opportunity to better prepare Georgia law enforcement officers with training equipment designed to improve decision making in high-pressure situations. After significant research on the various training options, Georgia police departments are choosing to include the Apex Officer judgmental use of force simulator as a significant component of their training program.

For example, Crisp County Sheriff's Office recently announced their procurement of the Apex Officer VR training simulator. According to a release published by Crisp County SO, "The sheriff's office wants the simulator to give deputies knowledge and skills but also the confidence to safely get through real-world situations."

The Camden County Sheriff’s Office’s also recently announced their newest training tool - Apex Officer's VR training simulator designed for Sheriff's Offices and Corrections Officers.

The Apex Officer content library is based on real-life incidents and is professionally produced with content that is carefully vetted by subject matter experts to rigorously test critical thinking skills, firearms skills under pressure, and psychological responses to the stresses of life-like situations.

Law Enforcement Training Simulators for Georgia Agencies

"Apex Officer is a game-changer for police training technology and is transforming the face of law enforcement," said Chase Dittmer, President of Apex Officer. "Outdated technology is preventing law enforcement agencies across the country from training effectively. The Apex Officer training platform was designed in the field with law enforcement, for law enforcement to save time, money and, most importantly, save the lives of law enforcement officers and the civilians they have sworn to protect. We want to help protect the people that protect us."

“Our main focus has always been safety. We want everyone to come home to their families safely. I grew up in a law enforcement family and as a child, I was always scared that they weren’t going to make it home,” said Chase Dittmer. “If you take out your firearm and you pull that trigger, you can’t take that bullet back. This isn't a video game. There isn’t a restart button in real life. However, if you pull out your firearm and you’re able to talk the suspect down and de-escalate the situation, you can always put your firearm away. We want the suspects, the victims, and our law enforcement officers to make it home safely. Apex Officer training system provides that preparation.”


In a little over a year, Apex Officer has quickly become the top VR training simulator in the state of Georgia.
