[ARCHIVED] 01-31-2020 Milo Range Sytem


The Danville Police Department has incorporated a training simulator that utilizes computer technology to enhance officer’s decision-making capabilities in the field.

The Danville Police Department recently purchased a Milo Range simulator through grant funding. This scenario-based training subjects officers to realistic and stressful situations in a training environment. Each scenario offers the trainer an opportunity to analyze the officer’s decisions creating teachable moments that ensure the officer’s actions are aligned with the law and department policy.

The Milo Range is a “portable simulator for use of force, crisis management, de-escalation and tactical judgment training” according to the manufacturer. This software, “provides hundreds of complex dynamic video training scenarios, graphics-based firearms skill-builder drills.”

This training tool complements the Department’s de-escalation and less than lethal training each officer receives to include Crisis Intervention Team training and upcoming ICAT (Integrating Communications, Assessment and Tactics) training. The “interactive judgment training” supports the Department’s overall mission of providing quality service to our community through a process of continuous improvement.
