Virtual Reality Driving Simulator Launches for Police and Law Enforcement Agencies
Apex Officer, the leading provider of training simulators for law enforcement, military, and first responders has announced today the launch of Apex Officer Drive - virtual reality driving simulator for police and law enforcement agencies.
Apex Officer Drive is the logical answer for instructing and teaching first responders the necessary skills to operate an emergency vehicle safely. All of Apex Officer's EVOC and police driving simulators are designed to enhance vehicle safety operations by emphasizing theory and principles of defensive driving in both emergency and non-emergency situations.
"Virtual reality is a natural fit for police and law enforcement driving simulations, bringing high visual immersion in line with detailed and realistic driving physics," said Chase Dittmer, co-founder and CEO of Apex Officer. "Outdated training methods and technology prevents law enforcement agencies from training effectively. Apex Officer Drive was designed in the field with our law enforcement partners."
Apex Officer's virtual reality police driving simulator features a wide range of vehicle models to choose from. Police car models featured in our driving simulator include:
- Ford Police Interceptor
- Ford Police Responder Sedan
- Ford F-150 Police Responder Truck
- Ford F-150 Police SSV
- Ford Police Expedition/Max SSV
- Ford Police Transit Prisoner Transport Vehicle
- Dodge Charger Pursuit Police Car
- And More
Apex Officer Drive is packed with features including, but not limited to customized vehicle hardware and equipment, Apex Officer content library and curriculum, comprehensive train-the-trainer course, reconfigurable graphics, cross-training interoperability, and after action debriefing.
"Our team has been working on the Apex Officer Drive platform for awhile, but we have held off releasing it until the market was ready for a new driving simulator. Building a virtual reality driving simulator requires expertise in four very different areas. These are: advanced virtual reality development, specialized driving hardware, simulation software and educational curricula or course ware. And then it requires human factor researchers to validate the resulting program," said Chase Dittmer.
Apex Officer’s simulation-based driver training allows you to expose your officers and drivers to various challenging and hazard-laden scenarios in a controlled environment. You can record operator reactions and response times, and provide after-action reviews and debriefing that point out performance improvement areas for each driver. Apex Officer’s simulator-based training approach improves critical driving skills, enhances decision making abilities, and increases the safety of your law enforcement agencies’ operations.
