Decision Making, De-escalation & Community Safety

It takes real experience to build real skills. Driving a vehicle—whether in police pursuit or simply patrolling an area—comprises a large part of most law enforcement officers’ days. That much time driving their vehicles (combined with the regular experience of unknown, dangerous, and high-stress situations) can be nerve-wracking. Additionally, according to the Department of Transportation, since the pandemic began people are indeed driving worse than they once did. All of this is compounded by the added complexity and danger that comes along with operating a vehicle during a pursuit. That heightened alertness and fear for safety escalates officers’ emotions and creates extremely stressful work conditions.

Preparing for these variable conditions requires police officers to develop specialized skills. That’s why law enforcement agency driver training is so important. The LE-1000 and 1000C police pursuit training simulators are custom hardware/software solutions. They combine force-feedback steering, motion seats, and geometrically correct field-of-view displays with immersive, customized 3D simulation software. Most importantly, LE-1000 simulators are instructor-controlled. All driving scenarios can be customized to suit your department’s unique needs, challenges, and skill sets. Each scenario can be tweaked by your agency in advance or while running. This combination of instructor control and immersive simulation consistently creates emotionally vivid training exercises that test police officers’ motor, cognitive, and emotional skills.

Effective debriefing is the key to extracting every teachable moment and opportunity for improvement. To facilitate this, your police driver training simulation solution can include both standard and advanced logging and after-action scenario review systems—whichever is the best fit for your operation.

Law Enforcement Continuum of Training

FAAC’s police driving simulators are part of the Continuum of Training for law enforcement officers. The Continuum of Training is a complete set of training simulators for law enforcement officers and first responders, customized around your communities needs and vital characteristics.  This includes FAAC’s Incident Command, which brings in a larger pursuit element matching the complexity of real-life vehicle pursuits. This solution integrates several networked simulation components for a true multi-level, full-cycle, immersive training experience that will convincingly emulate both the physical and emotional realities of complex multi-unit, multi-departmental incidents.

With the Continuum of Training system, you harness a “simple to complex” approach to training public safety personnel. This makes the most of each simulator and tool, for incremental, context-focused student learning. The program includes scripts and curricula that reinforce and support each other through a pre-planned “road map” of phases that focus on judgment and decision-making skills.

Each scenario can include a variety of physical settings—schools, industrial areas, city streets, single- or multi-family dwellings—and a range of weather and lighting conditions. Every scenario is fully programmable and customizable and can be modified by the instructor as it runs (including joystick control of pedestrians, suspects, onlookers, etc.), to keep trainees on their toes. The result is an educationally rich training exercise with all the benefits of hands-on practical training but without the high cost, organizational challenges, or risks of injury and equipment damage that come with a large-scale live exercise.
