There has been a lot of controversy surrounding the recent police shooting of a man in the Westlake District who was reportedly armed with a knife. It raises questions about how the LAPD trains for such situations.

Eyewitness News got an inside look at LAPD training in possible life-and-death situations. The LAPD allowed Eyewitness News behind the scenes to see officers work with a simulator intended to show them how to respond in a dangerous confrontation.

Eyewitness News was invited to the Los Angeles Police Department’s tactics training unit for a rare look at how experienced patrol officers are trained and re-trained. It was also a chance to sample the life and death decisions they must make.
