With more than 60,000 employees, U.S. Customs and Border Protection is one of the world's largest law enforcement organizations and is charged with keeping terrorists and their weapons out of the U.S. while facilitating lawful international travel and trade.
"The U.S. Customs and Border Protection safeguards America's borders protecting the public from dangerous people and materials," said Jason Mulcahy, general manager of VirTra, Inc. "Their officers interact with more than one million people per day. VirTra's high-quality immersive training systems will help prepare those officers to handle the hostile and crisis situations they can face while teaching strategic, tactical engagement and de-escalation skills in a safe, controlled and cost-effective manner."
The V-300 is capable of simulating hundreds of different scenarios that can convey body language and other non-verbal threat cues that are a crucial part of progressive judgmental use of force training. The V-300 also has multiple screens that offer a 300-degree view, and includes peripheral vision and weapons that closely match those used in the field to enhance the transferability of the training to real-life situations. Each training scenario in the VirTra V-300 is based on real-life incidents and is professionally produced with content that is carefully vetted by subject matter experts to rigorously test a trainee's critical thinking skills, weapons skills under pressure, and psychological responses to the stresses of life-like situations.
