MILO Simulators – immersive, interactive simulators go beyond marksmanship training. The MILO system is a full “human interaction simulator,” and comes with a standard library of hundreds of varied, high-definition role-playing scenarios, each with branching decision trees. These features are especially valuable in training for crisis intervention, whether the officer needs to respond to an incident at a workplace, disaster site, or any other scenario.
MILO-simulated scenarios are optimized to create opportunities for officers to practice their judgment skills in true-to-life situations, with all the complexity, nuance, and emotional pressures these bring. Scenarios range from relatively straightforward procedures to much more challenging situations, such as those involving domestic disputes, elder care issues, or individuals in the grips of a mental-health crisis or under the influence of drugs and alcohol. As first responders, officers can manage the incident while awaiting the arrival of mental health professionals or others trained in critical incident stress management (CISM). Critical incident management is more than engaging in an intervention – it requires the law enforcement officer to use their full set of skills (everything from gauging the reaction of an individual to stress management) in order to ensure the best possible outcome.
