Prince George's County police now have a new tool to help them train for dangerous situations.

The Judgmental Enhancement Training System (JETS) will help officers train to make split second decisions. JETS can generate 425 different scenarios, including an active shooter, a hostage situation, even threats of terrorism. In turn, participants can decide how to respond, with a gun, a taser, pepper spray or with no weapon at all.

Lt. William Gleason, with the Prince George's County Police Department Training Education Division, said, "We can escalate the situations to make them worst case scenario. We call that stress inoculation or crisis rehearsal, or we can keep the scenarios mild mannered and let them use their communication skills to deescalate things."
