Binghamton Police have a new tool for rehearsing emergency response scenarios.

The City has a new digital police range simulator that plays out interactive video of situations with a responding officer.

The simulator cost 155-thousand 550 dollars and was financed through a $37,400 state grant and $118,150 in capital funding.

The situations loaded in the simulator can result in different outcomes each time and records an officer’s response for evaluation on whether they decided to shoot or how they interact with the simulated citizens.

The Binghamton Police Department has hosted other police agencies in use of the simulator.

The VirTra V-180 simulator has a three screen, 180 degree immersive training view to offer realistic training scenarios.
