That's why systems that immerse you in realistic scenarios—complete with lethal and less-lethal options, and even physical consequences in some cases—are so valuable in training. View our slideshow of seven use-of-force simulator systems that provide this important training.

Today's simulators are high-tech computer systems with digital projectors that play complex interactive scenarios. They are designed not only to teach officers when and how to shoot guns and less-lethal weapons but also how to talk to suspects to avoid escalation and confrontation.
