MILO systems are built as a holistic training solution, informed by the latest cognitive science and best practices, to offer flexible, non-linear training opportunities that each agency can adapt to every individual. These immersive simulation solutions create unlimited opportunities for officers and instructors to identify and address implicit biases in a safe, structured environment where potential conflicts and disparities can be identified and resolved. Officers will hone their situational awareness while pinpointing each and every opportunity for better communication and effective de-escalation.
Each MILO simulation scenario is instructor-controlled, with full audio/video capture and advanced logging, debriefing, and scenario developmental tools. The simulator hardware creates an immersive, sensory-rich environment that triggers real and vivid emotional responses. Every scenario is interactive and can be made more intense and challenging (or eased off) at any time, either before beginning the scenario or while running it.
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 simulators include a library of hundreds of 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.
MILO’s trainee-centered after-action debriefing process actively engages officers in mining each session 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 a police officer to work in the fishbowl of modern law enforcement.
