Controlled Response to Crisis Situations

We win every fight that never starts. The Taser® can be a powerful tool in halting a situation before it escalates. That’s why almost every law enforcement officer in the United States now carries a Taser® or similar conducted electrical weapon (CEW).

But good taser® use goes beyond doing your daily spark test and learning to manage target distance and the cartridge’s 8-degree spread. When our Taser® training expands to include situational awareness and de-escalation, we reap the benefits of improved community relations and decreased officer injury and loss of life. In this way, training police officers in the effective use of Tasers® can become a cornerstone of your police department.

Immersive Simulations for Police Taser Training

The MILO  Taser® training solution is built on the same high-definition simulation platform as MILO (an immersive, interactive single or multi-screen simulation-based training system), with scenarios designed to help officers practice the specialized strategies and tactics that come with using electronic control weapons (ECWs)—sometimes called “electronic control devices” (ECDs), or “electroshock weapon” (ESWs). These less-lethal options allow police officers to train for situations in which they can avoid the use of their gun. The result is a police department that gains its city’s trust through an appropriate level of force.

More importantly, MILO police taser® training solutions create an emotionally immersive role-playing environment. Every system comes with a standard library of scenarios and can also be expanded to include custom scenarios to meet the training demands of your agency and community. The instructor controls the branching decision tree as officers navigate challenging interactions with suspects, citizens, and other responders.

In the field, nothing occurs in isolation. Each year more officers die on the road than in confrontations with suspects.  That’s why MILO offers solutions like DrivingForce, the industry’s only fully integrated police driver training and force-options simulator solution.  Training officers to smoothly transition from pursuit to contact and de-escalating at every step is vital in improving outcomes and eliminating avoidable injuries and death.

MILO-based taser training solutions use actual CEWs—including the popular X26P and the X2 models from Axon (formerly Taser International)— as well as older models no longer supported by Axon, such as the X3 and XREP. These modified CEWs have removable training cartridges and standard taser batteries, preserving the heft and feel of active electronic control weapons. The HD video scenarios reflect the realities of using a taser in the field, including accurate representations of the full range of reactions a suspect might have in varying circumstances: heavy garments, poor probe contact or placement, being under the influence of controlled substances, etc.

Throughout every scenario the instructor can make adjustments to hone their student’s judgment and skills. Scenarios can be run in interactive low-light/flashlight conditions, alone or with multiple officers. Each taser or ECW device can be assigned a unique ID, to individually track and score each participant.

Training your Trainers to Train your Policy

The real value in an integrated, immersive taser training solution is in the opportunities it creates to pinpoint every opening for de-escalation, as well as the ramifications of each force option.  We train your trainers to train your policy. As those policies change, so will your simulation.
