Abstract

One hundred and one small and rural law enforcement officers from Kentucky, Washington and Texas were surveyed and interviewed regarding their perceptions of a mobile use-of-force simulation training system. PRiSim™. Specifically, attitudes toward comfort level with interactivity, value of the mobility of the system and overall usefulness of the simulator system are focused upon. Overwhelmingly, officers felt the PRiSim™ system was an effective law enforcement training tool and considered the mobility a valuable aspect in receiving use-of-force training.
