Force on force simulations are a great training tool, but the numbers of officers shot during the "no gun" training is staggering. This program, with Ralph Mroz, covers the safety protocols required to run simulation training in a completely safe manner.

Dave Smith stops by the IES booth at IACP 2009 to talk to Chuck Deakins about the new platforms that IES has developed. IES has developed a fully integrated driving simulator with sensory inputs that allow for the analysis of student officers before they drive their police car in the real world. IES has worked to make this practice simulation as realistic as possible in order to prevent officer deaths while on duty.
