Cadets taught how to make decisions

WARREN, Mich. – A new simulator at Macomb Community College simulates situations police officers could face while on duty to train them for encounters where they may need to decide whether or not to use force.

The 180-degree simulator teaches police cadets how to make decisions and allows them to make mistakes in various scenarios so that they can learn from them.
