The Museum’s Training Simulator provides visitors an opportunity to experience true-to-life situations involving law enforcement officers and citizens that are serious, and require complex decision making. Visitors who participate in the simulator are offered an opportunity to see, think, and act in situations like those officers experience every day.
Through viewing and responding to interactive video segments of typical law enforcement and citizen encounters, participants learn how stress, split-second decision making, and situational assessment guide officer responses. This educational tool provides visitors a better understanding of what law enforcement officers do and describes how and why they do it. This simulation provides visitors the ultimate “walk in the shoes” experience.
