Amarillo Police have a new situation simulation training device.
The new simulator not only provides an additional tool officers have never experienced, but it also allows officers to practice critical decision-making skills with a wide variety of realistic scenarios using equipment officers have with them every day.
Most of the scenarios will present the officer with the decision whether to shoot or not shoot.
The simulator does not replace any other type of APD training.
The three screen, 180-degree simulator offers over 800 scenarios as well as a shooting range.
Currently, firearm instructors are getting trained on the simulator, so once in service training starts, they will be able to train.
