In the aftermath of several recent officer shootings, Utah State University Police Academy utilizes the advanced software by Apex Officer's virtual reality training system to train new students and future officers of how to interact with extremely volatile situations.

How USU Police Academy uses Apex Officer for training.

Apex Officer's VR training simulator allows students to learn by doing.

In the past many law enforcement agencies have used virtual reality (VR) technology to train their employees, but it's been limited to simulating a physical environment in a video game. Now, Utah State University Police Academy has taken advantage of Apex Officer's de-escalation simulator and given it to new students.

This is a good example of how virtual reality can be used more broadly in law enforcement.

How this method of training can help create better police departments across the country.

Apex Officer’s virtual reality training system offers a unique opportunity for law enforcement agencies to train officers in the most advanced and immersive police training devices available. Apex Officer’s Virtual Reality Training Platform allows officers to interact with real-world scenarios, as well as simulate a variety of situations that they may encounter on the job.

Apex Officer VR training platform can be used in a variety of settings including:

  • Highway Patrol

  • Police Departments
  • Corrections


The virtual reality training simulator that Apex Officer provides is now available to the public via the Utah State University Police Academy, which is a fully immersive and interactive training experience.
