Using MILO Range Simulators to Mitigate Unconscious & Implicit Bias with Training Scenarios

MILO simulators are designed to help your agency accomplish its most challenging and complex training tasks. By providing a flexible, scalable, and immersive environment for trainees to practice different techniques, instructors can create tailored lessons to ensure agency-specific learning objectives are met as they continue to evolve.

Community policing in the modern era demands emotionally intelligent and resilient officers. In turbulent times, a reactive and politicized media environment can make it increasingly difficult for officers in the field to develop and maintain soft skills, cultural literacy, and open communication within their communities. MILO training simulators improve awareness and responsiveness, helping agencies build bridges over treacherous terrain.

Different cultures communicate differently. Rather than just a narrow band of stereotypical scenarios, MILO simulators include a library of over 1000 unique, immersive role-playing scenarios. These vividly illustrate the diversity of American lifestyles, situations, and communication styles. They feature a wide range of culturally and situationally appropriate actors, in terms of ages, races, genders, abilities, socio-economic status, and cultural heritage.

Through simulation-based implicit bias mitigation training, police trainees can enhance awareness and their own sensitivities to respond appropriately in diverse environments. MILO training creates unlimited opportunities to identify biases in a safe, structured, learner-centric environment where potential conflicts in diverse settings can be identified and resolved.

Trainee-Centered Implicit Bias Training Scenarios Run on MILO Range Simulators

Instructors often report that the real value in a MILO immersive, simulation-based implicit bias training is in the practice it gives officers and instructors to pinpoint each and every opportunity for better communication and productive de-escalation. Develop your officers even further with advanced counter bias training powered by CBTSim.

Former and active law enforcement officers, along with PhD-level industry researchers, guide the development and production process for all of our simulation scenarios. These reflect evidence-based, real-world situations, and incidents that can occur in your communities—not caricatures drawn from a politicized worldview.

Advanced Training Solutions for Managing Unconscious Bias Training

MILO simulators are instructor-controlled, with full audio/video capture and advanced logging, debriefing, and scenario developmental tools. Any scenario can be made more intense and challenging (or eased off) at any time, before beginning the scenario or while running it. Our simulator solutions provide a sensory-rich environment, designed to trigger real and vivid emotional responses. The included scenarios have been crafted to enhance cross-cultural communication and raise your trainee’s awareness of the appearance of possible implicit biases before these become an issue in the field.

MILO’s trainee-centered after-action debriefing process actively engages officers in mining each of their sessions for every teachable moment and opportunity for reflection.  Trainees learn by seeing how they appear on camera, and how their decision will look after the fact. There is no better way to prepare an officer to work in the fishbowl of modern policing.
