Your Virtual Reality Training Resource
Office of the Utah Attorney General
3/13/17

In this issue, Utah law enforcement leaders and trainers will discover new information about how virtual reality training and Force Science are combined to help officers prevent “choking” or physical freeze at a critical moment of performance. You will learn about the benefits of inviting local community leaders to experience first-hand an officer involved critical incident on the VirTra® virtual reality simulator. We invite agency trainers to schedule the virtual reality range to improve shooting skills from basic marksmanship to technical long gun shots.

We are grateful to the Legislature, Governor’s Office, and many other public safety partners for making the VirTra simulator available to Utah’s Law Enforcement Community. To schedule a demonstrations for community leaders or agency training session call Will Fowlke or Ken Wallentine at 801-281-1200.

Since launching the VirTra program at the Utah Attorney General’s Office, I‘ve observed many agencies participate in the training. I haven’t met a trainee that didn’t enjoy the experience to some degree. The department trainers who debrief the training tell us they find value in the virtual reality scenarios that their officers experienced. Do you know that we have simulated handgun and rifle ranges available on the VirTra simulator?
