Modesto police use simulator to help train officers in different scenarios


STOCKTON, CA - Modesto police offered reporters the chance to use the department's force options simulator Thursday. The machinery displays, on a large screen, the types of encounters police deal with. The person watching has to determine the level of threat and then how to respond to that threat.

Modesto police officers will spend about four hours on the machine every two years. There are hundreds of scenarios and the endings of those encounters can be changed so they wrap up peacefully or violently.

"We try to teach our officers to be open minded, be aware of your surroundings, and control the situation so they go home at night," said Sgt. Terry Seese of the Modesto Police Department.

He said the video training reminds officers encounters with the public can't be predicted.
