RD241 - Virtual Training Systems -- September 2013

Executive Summary:
The Department of State Police currently provides some of the most progressive law enforcement training available to both sworn employees of the agency and officers from other departments across the Commonwealth. To enable the Department to continue to be successful in this endeavor, virtual training system technology would enhance the ability to deliver these critical police training skills. Firearms and officer survival training iterations are some of the most significant in the development and maintenance of current response preparedness for all law enforcement agencies. Enhanced virtual training technology would be a tremendous addition to this training capability.

The Department of State Police has and continues to be a leader in progressive training methodologies that will prepare employees of the agency to safely respond to an ever expanding threat package. This anticipatory posture is maintained through a comprehensive analysis of available training solutions in keeping with current agency mission objectives.
