COLUMBUS, Ohio – Police departments across the country are evaluating their policies as demands for reform continue to grow due to tragic clashes between officers and residents in the neighborhoods they serve.
There is a new immersive training platform called VRDT, which stands for “virtual reality decisions and tactics” or VERDICT. It is considered a tool for training on de-escalation of law enforcement.
Al Weggeman is the CEO of Inveris Training Solutions, the company that developed VRDT and Jay Ayala is the company’s virtual systems expert and director.
They recently spoke to Spectrum News about the tool and how police can use it to slow down situations.
