In a charged political climate, use of force training for police must go beyond sharpening reflexes, developing muscle memory, and keeping skills fresh. Law enforcement officers need to hone a complete set of decision-making tools.
Instructors increasingly report that they don’t just want to prepare officers for the physical facts of using force; they need to prepare officers for the emotional realities of real-life use-of-force situations. Training law enforcement isn’t simply about shooting practice and tactical decisions, but instead must provide police officers with the skills to make the most effective choice for the situation. Training programs should be comprehensive enough to include responses to verbal cues by the officer, threat assessment (including decision-making scenarios about when the use of deadly force is necessary), and a variety of other skills.
MILO is not limited to simple police firearms training. Any HD scenarios can be run in interactive low-light/flashlight conditions. Separate scenarios are designed for practicing less-lethal police tools (baton, taser, OC spray, etc.), critical incident response, situational awareness, community policing, judgment skills, active listening, operational strategy, and de-escalation.
