Controlled Response to Crisis Situations

How we train in advance absolutely determines how we will react in the moment. Now more than ever, officers must arrive at the scene armed with an arsenal of de-escalation strategies and, even more importantly, they need to be prepared to smoothly move among these strategies and to transition into force options if de-escalation proves impossible.

De-Escalation Training with MILO Range

As training tools, MILO Range simulation systems allow officers to experience complex and nuanced scenarios that adapt in real-time, responding to the officer’s actions, and in which all of their de-escalation and force options are on the table.

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.”  MILO includes a standard library of more than 500 scenarios, ranging from routine stops to complex mental-health crisis and domestic situations.

These are fully emotionally immersive role-playing simulation scenarios, with branching decision trees. Officers have an 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’ judgment, situational awareness, and de-escalation skills.

Every call is proceeded and followed by driving. Each year more officers die due to driving mishaps than handgun assaults. That’s why MILO Range 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 De-Escalation Policy

MILO Range solutions go beyond the simulation. Over and over again trainers and instructors report that the real value in their integrated, immersive de-escalation simulation training solution is in the opportunities it creates to teach officers to uncover every opening for de-escalation, and bring home the ramifications of each force option. We train your trainers to train your policy. As those policies change, so will your simulation.
