Community Policing

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 law enforcement 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.The result is a safer community, a reduction in crime, and a sense of leadership within the police force.

At MILO Range, we provide the resource that community policing training has been missing: a life-like simulation environment where interactions with the community can be carefully practiced and analyzed. Through careful development of training scenarios that allow the police department to train officers on community policing and patrol, the reputation of law enforcement within the community can be improved alongside their ability to combat crime and ensure public safety.

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; MILO Range can provide 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 further develop 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.
