Pursuit Training Articles

  • Avoiding “Simulator Sickness” in High-Speed Pursuit Training Simulators
    “Simulator sickness” is a persistent issue in many high speed pursuit training programs, and can really derail a session. Simulator sickness (also called “simulator adaptation syndrome” or “SAS”) has been an issue for as long as there have been modern vehicle simulators. (Trainers first noted this cocktail of nausea, headaches, cold-sweats, and eye strain in ...
  • The Case for “Tactical Seatbelt” in Police Pursuit Training
    It seems almost laughable to say this, but police pursuit training programs need to directly address seatbelt usage. It’s a simple fact: Seat belts have the capacity to save more law enforcement lives every year than bullet-proof vests, riot gear, tasers, and sidearms. A bit over 88 percent of U.S. drivers and front-seat passengers regularly wear ...
  • Real-World Simulation Training Successes: Sacramento PD and FDNY Ambulances
    There are two key focus areas for improving police pursuit driver training programs: speed: reduce it whenever possible, maintain vehicle control when high-speed operation is a necessity negotiating right-of-way: avoiding other motor vehicles/pedestrians/cyclists, clearing intersections, completing turns, etc. Addressing Key Danger Points with Police Pursuit Driver Training As noted by California’s Commission on Peace Officer Standards and Training (CA POST) ...
  • Addressing Driver Distraction and Fatigue in Police Pursuit Training
    According to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration in 2015 distracted driving injured 391,000 Americans—mostly private citizens. Subsequently, in the vast majority of these cases the solution is easy and obvious: Toss your cell phone in the glove box. But emergency responders—and especially law enforcement officers—do not have that option. On-call police officers must constantly monitor ...
  • Police Pursuit Training is a Perishable Skill
    There is no doubt that the occasional police pursuit training refresher course helps prevent collisions.  The California Commission on Peace Officer Standards and Training (CA POST) confirms that having officers complete additional post-basic academy police pursuit driver training programs consistently reduces collisions.  This goes a long way toward explaining the “Age Factor” in high-speed pursuit collisions: ...

FAAC Pursuit Training Series Videos



Nothing more fully prepares officers for what they will do during a patrol cycle than placing them in those situations during training. FAAC’s Continuum of Training combines driving, use-of-force and incident command systems in a single training session, the officer has a much more realistic experience as it relates to their duties. Officers do exactly the same things in the training room that they do on duty.

In the DrivingForce simulation, officers will receive and respond to calls in the patrol car, conduct an investigation and field interview, make a simulated arrest and implement a level of force necessary to gain compliance from a subject. The most valuable component of this combined training is that it takes the officer from the beginning to the end of a call.

FAAC’s incident command and management simulator solution.  It’s built from the ground up to create the most realistic, reproducible, and customizable training scenarios possible for emergency operation centers, municipal crisis teams, first responders, and other safety and security professionals. Each scenario can address all the levels of strategic, tactical, and operational thinking that come into play in a critical incident. RescueSim is inherently scalable, both in terms of class-size, scenario complexity, and organizational hierarchy.
