The training building houses two specialized pieces of training equipment. The first is the MILO System from IES Interactive Training, which is a firearms training simulator. The simulator allows officers to participate in real-life scenerios concerning use-of-force. The MILO system allows the student to work through a situation and decide the correct course of action throughout the use-of-force continuum. The second simulator is from L3 DPA (L3 Communications) and is their PatrolSim Driving Simulator. Training on this simulator allows students to be instructed on correct emergency driving proceedures while in the classroom, training that possibly could not be done on the street.
