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.
