FORT LAUDERDALE, Fla. — Firearms simulators used by police departments used to be little more than overrated video games.

Now, they're realistic law-enforcement training tools used to assist officers around the country, according to Eric Aronowitz, training officer for the Delray Beach Police Department.

The portable simulators use digital videos with interactive scenarios, some of which come with the system, or can be created by the department. Officers talk to the characters on the projector screen and must react accordingly, either by using a laser weapon or by talking it out.
