RCPD’s ‘MILO Range’ simulates real-life incidents


RAPID CITY, S.D. – An interactive and realistic program is honing police officers’ decision-making skills for life on the street.

The Rapid City Police Department demonstrated the MILO Range, also known as the Multiple Interactive Learning Objectives training simulators, at the Public Safety Building on Friday. The system utilizes realistic guns that fire laser beams at a specialized projector with a hit-detection system. The guns are also loaded with carbon dioxide canisters that simulate recoil. A firearms instructor operates the projector by playing prerecorded scenarios depicting multiple types of crime scenes.
