MILO Range
Community Policing Simulation Training

Controlled Response to Crisis Situations

In the field, nothing occurs in isolation. But all too often our community policing training is broken into many small, unconnected pieces:  Diversity sensitivity workshops, ethics and integrity training, role-playing, grassroots intelligence gathering all excellent tools, but all taught in isolation.

Taking officers through adaptive, immersive simulated scenarios in which all de-escalation and force options are on the table is the best way to build both tactical and communication skills and to ensure they develop the good judgment and emotional control it takes to implement a good community policing policy.

Community Policing Training with MILO Range

Despite the name, MILO Range is designed to go beyond marksmanship and firearm training. This isn’t just a computerized firing range or a simple “use-of-force” and force-options simulator; it is a “human interaction simulator” with a library of hundreds of generic and custom scenarios.

MILO offers fully emotionally immersive role-playing simulation scenarios with branching decision trees.  Officers have the opportunity to exercise every facet of their training from fine-tuning their presence, tone of voice, and de-escalation strategies to using force options when necessary.  Throughout every scenario, the instructor can make adjustments to hone both individual and interdependent aspects of their students’ tactical, judgment, situational awareness, and communication skills.

In today’s modern police response, almost every call is preceded and followed by driving. When a situation goes wrong, the focus of criticism and remediation is usually on the actions of the officers at the scene. But many officers are flooded with information from many sources and are “escalated” well before they reach the call. This can lead to a “faster than necessary” response, creating unnecessary hazards.

At the very least, an escalated drive will always further ramp up an officer’s emotional state. Officers who arrive at the scene escalated are going to have a much more difficult time deescalating that situation. That’s why FAAC offers solutions like DrivingForce, the industry’s only fully integrated police driver training and police interaction training simulator solution. Training officers to smoothly transition from pursuit to contact, deescalating themselves and the situation at every stage, is a vital step in improving outcomes and eliminating avoidable injuries and death.

Training your Trainers to Train your Community Policing Policy

MILO Range solutions go beyond the simulation. Over and over again trainers and instructors report that the real value in their simulation-based training program is in the opportunities it creates for trainees to pinpoint every opportunity for de-escalation and explore the ramifications of each force option.  We train your trainers to train your policy. As those policies change, so can your simulation.

Community Policing Solution

We invest time in understanding your needs and policies up front, then work closely with your trainers to develop and deliver the appropriate training solution.  We’ll help you find the best way to integrate this custom solution into your training procedures, and support you in maintaining and evolving this solution as your policies and challenges inevitably change over time. We don’t just sell equipment; we partner with agencies and their instructors to develop their ideal community policing training solution.
