Apex Police, Training

A Cincinnati Police Department officer demonstrates Apex Police virtual reality training equipment. Users must wear VR goggles, use mock equipment and wear a battery pack to interact with the simulations.

Victoria police will soon have a new way for officers to train for real-life scenarios with the help of virtual reality.

The training simulator can immerse users in scenarios ranging from common to critical, including traffic stops, welfare checks, active shooter situations and mental health related calls.
