So I recently stumbled upon this very interesting video showing the NYPD training for active shooters using virtual reality. It’s definitely an interesting news piece that you should check out. Obviously, there are certain scenes in this that might be upsetting to some people so just keep that in mind. I’d also like to point out there’s a couple of scenes where police officer kindly asks the virtual shooter to put down their weapon. I don’t think they would be that in real life but that’s the only real nitpicky thing that I noticed about the video. Let me know what you guys think of this technology and if you think it’s a good training tool for the police departments in the United States.
