Anniston Police Get New Virtual Reality Training Kit | Local news

With the growth of virtual reality in the digital age, which allows for simulated three-dimensional views of real-life situations, law enforcement is using the technology to redefine training techniques.

The Anniston Police Department is now using a virtual reality (VR) training simulator, as well as new, state-of-the-art tasers for all officers in the department. Powered by the company AXON, the virtual reality system allows officers to go through scenarios they might encounter on the job to better equip the officer with the skills to handle that situation.
