In an effort to revolutionize the way sheriff's deputies and law enforcement professionals are trained, Sheriff's Offices across the country are now implementing VR training into their training programs.

In the past, law enforcement officers were required to learn how to shoot, disarm, and handle a variety of different weapons in a classroom setting. Now, Sheriff's Offices are looking to Apex Officer to improve the quality of training by using virtual reality.

VR is emerging as the top training tool for law enforcement agencies.

Virtual Reality (VR) is an emerging technology that can be applied to multiple industries, from healthcare to education. Recently, it has been applied to law enforcement for use in officer training. Sheriff departments across the country are turning to VR simulations to train officers, due to the risks associated with live fire training.

Apex Officer is the simulator of choice for sheriff's offices across the country.

A virtual reality simulator for police training has been created by Apex Officer and is being used by Sheriff Offices across the country. The simulator is designed to be used by law enforcement to better train against active shooter situations.

Apex Officer is a virtual reality training simulator that takes officers into highly realistic 3D scenarios, where they are forced to make decisions that put them in reactive positions. This produces a more natural reaction.

Sheriff's offices adopt VR training at a rapid rate.

The Crisp County Sheriff's Office recently made headlines with their decision to use virtual reality training to help their deputies prepare for the worst. Now, they are getting a new training simulator from Apex Officer that will help them get better at handling a wide range of situations

Another notable example is Monmouth County Sheriff's Office announcement of their state of the art VR training center. In a recent press release, "Sheriff Shaun Golden is proud to announce the latest state of the art virtual reality platform that the Monmouth County Police Academy is now using to train members of law enforcement."


It is an exciting time to be involved in law enforcement, as the way in which deputies and police officers are trained is changing drastically. One great example of this is the use of virtual reality training technology. Whether you are a police officer or a sheriff, you can use virtual reality to train for active shooter scenarios and other emergency situations.
