PRINCETON, NJ – The Princeton Police Department will implement the WRAP Reality virtual training program, a fully immersive training simulator and a complete public safety training platform.
The platform provides first aid discipline and practice in methods of de-escalation, conflict resolution and use of force for better performance in the field.
“We always strive to have the best training for our officers and adding virtual reality is an important step toward that goal,” Christopher Morgan, Princeton police chief, said in a prepared statement. “Virtual reality training allows us to immerse our officers in dangerous and critical decision-making situations, while controlling the outcome. WRAP Reality offers us the opportunity to hone the de-escalation skills our officers need to successfully disable and certainly a series of critical incidents. ”
