Duty-to-intervene
simulation training

Training of behavior in a complex simulated situation, expressed in the prevention of illegal actions of a colleague of a law enforcement officer and the protection of the rights of a civilian.
We have seen many stories of police brutality and unnecessary or in many cases unlawful use of force in recent years. The cases that make it to mainstream media, like the George Floyd case from back in 2020 are just the tip of the iceberg, and there are so many similar cases where police officers unlawfully assault civilians and misuse their power in other ways.
When an officer is violating someone's rights, or using unnecessary force against a civilian, it is the responsibility and duty of morally driven officers present at the scene to intervene. Imagine if one of Derek Chauvin's fellow officers had intervened, and made sure that George Floyd wasn't treated so violently, maybe the worst could have been avoided. Moreover, that was just one case, we don't know how many citizens have to deal with physical and mental trauma after they encounter a police officer who violates their rights instead of protecting them.

However, the truth is that the vast majority of police officers aren't like Derek Chauvin. They are good men, who are determined to uphold the law and protect civilians. Yet, in many cases, they aren't able to intervene and stop the unlawful actions of a fellow officer. Why is that so?

Well, there are many reasons, from peer pressures, and fear to agency culture. However, the most impactful reason is that officers aren't trained to do so, and they don't recognize that they have the power to intervene. Duty to Intervene training is almost non-existent in most police departments. Since officers have never experienced such a scenario, they are quite likely to hesitate and freeze in a situation where a fellow officer is using excessive force, or being abusive.
There is a common narrative among police officers that you always need to have your partner back, and where that may be true, officers also need to be taught when to speak up against their partners. They should be taught that their basic duty is the protection of civilians and enforcing the law. So, when a fellow officer immorally breaks the law and assaults a civilian, it is their moral and professional duty to step in and stop their partners.

Designing a training regime to practice "duty to Intervene" scenarios can be challenging. Police departments can give theoretical training to officers, however, there is no way to get practical training. These days, many police departments are turning towards virtual training simulators because of their versatility. They are also a safe and cost-effective training method.

Virtual training simulators have a wide variety of training exercises and can be used for specific duty to Intervene training as well. These training simulations are designed to trigger emotional and psychological responses in police officers. They are designed to empower the morality of police officers and teach them the skills to question decisions and challenge unethical behaviors in an effective, and objective manner.

What conditions need to be created in order for the virtual shooting range to work as efficiently as possible?
  1. Absence of direct sunlight, as well as reflections from bright (brighter than the projection) light sources (for example, a mirror reflecting lamp light into the camera lens).
  2. The surface on which the projection is placed should not be black / dark (black / dark surfaces absorb the laser beam from the weapon mockup and it becomes not bright enough for correct recognition), it should not be glossy, as the projection itself is reflected from such a surface not evenly.
  3. Programs work correctly under normal room lighting (but without bright direct sunlight and other glare that is brighter than the projection). Also, do not use completely darkened rooms.
  4. The best distance to install the camera is 3-6 meters from the projection. Do not position the camera too far from the work surface.
  5. Observe the projection proportions by setting the "AUTO" mode in the projector aspect ratio settings - the projector will automatically select the scale according to the resolution of the connected device (computer).
Does it have VR / 3D support?
Yes, software are made with VR / 3D surround image support. It is important that the hardware (computer / projector / glasses) are compatible with each other and it could create a 3D image. For example, all equipment runs on NVIDIA 3D VISION
Minimum and optimal computer system requirements
Minimum requirements:
Processor: at least 1.9 GHz Number of cores: at least 4
RAM: at least DDR3
RAM: at least 4 Gb
Operating system Windows 7/8/10/11
Video card: built-in video card can be used

Optimal requirements:
Processor: at least 2.3 GHz Number of cores: at least 4
RAM: at least DDR3
RAM: at least 8 Gb
Operating system Windows 7/8/10/11
Video card: discrete at least 4 Gb
What is the quality of the image and screen resolution?
Image quality and resolution depend only on the equipment on which the content will be played. The software supports all available screen resolutions, including 5K (5120 × 2880) / 4K (3840 × 2160) / FULL HD (1920 × 1080).

Games can be run both on a computer with a built-in video card and a projector with a resolution of 800x600, and on a computer with discrete video and a 5K / 4K / Full HD projector - accordingly, in the second case, the picture will be significantly better than in the first.
Do you have conditions for partnership, special prices and so on?
