MILO Simulator used in Macomb Citizen Police Academy

Macomb law enforcement agencies have been working to implement reforms to address the concerns of residents and those on the front lines. At the forefront of many initiatives is how to better deal with the public.

The Eastpointe Police Department’s Chaplain Program and the Sterling Heights Citizens Police Academy are examples of programs that build new connections and provide residents with a higher level of knowledge and insight into the workings of their police department.

In the coming weeks, Citizen Police Academy students will have an opportunity to run through emotional, immersive role-playing simulations on a MILO simulator. “We’ve never hooked anyone up to a monitor, but I guarantee their heart is racing. In every class, there is a student surprised by the outcome,” said Sgt. Aaron Susalla.
