Training Your Officers With Police Car Simulators

Training Your Officers With Police Car Simulators

Driving a police car can be overwhelming, frustrating, and complicated. It is important that police officers know how to operate the equipment on their vehicles at a moment’s notice. Different from vehicles that the general public drive, inside a police vehicle you’ll find things such as police radios, controls for sirens and flashing lights, and emergency equipment. All of these tools require training on how to operate them. It is important your team is properly trained and prepared for stressful situations while operating a police car. 

A police car simulator allows police officers safety and the prevention of risks while practicing various operations such as emergency response, scanning, pursuit management, and intersection clearing. The simulator provides realistic movements, so the trainees can learn proper acceleration, braking, and how to drive on various terrain. L3 Harris can help you find your officers the right simulator that fits the needs of your organization.

  • Practical training. You can practice various situations from a smooth highway to a rough dirt road. You can practice on any type of terrain without the need to travel to a location.
