For police departments, training with a PRISM simulator is more effective than sending officers to a shooting range for target practice and less expensive than using Simunition, a nonlethal training ammunition, said Milios, a retired Allentown (PA) police officer. It’s also safer, he said.

A group of 10 students can run through dozens of scenarios in a few hours, he said.
