“Its more of a judgment tool and a decision-making tool for deputies”, says Deputy Robert Crout who operates the simulator, “we take it out to other agencies to help them develop their officers as well.”

“We want our simulation in here to be as close to real life as possible”, Crout says showing one of the weapons that fires real bullets filled with compressed air that are used during the simulator training, “the only things that is different on this weapon is the barrel, they’ve switched out the barrel with a threaded barrel that can hold a laser device that will have a readout on the computer.”
