AIS Case Study: Georgia State Patrol
Besides the realistic system, a proven track record was also crucial. AIS has been delivering Mobile Training Facilities for years and its technology is considered superior. GSP also pointed to AIS'' integrated video system and Shootback® cannon as a major factor in its decision.
In 2001, Georgia State Patrol purchased an AIS PRISimTM Mobile Training Facility - complete with a Shootback® cannon. Cost of the system is an estimated $280-thousand.
Sgt. Johnson added, "The mobile facility gives us the consistency we''re looking for - and ensures that every trooper receives the same training."
"The value of this new system has been an eye opener for us. After completing their week-long training courses, 90% of our troopers say this training has increased their effectiveness in the field. They saw their shortcomings while in the simulator, and by bringing attention to an issue, they could correct it."
Sgt. Johnson added, "If we plant a seed now with the best training available, it may save an officer''s life five years from now."
