High school students get dose of police training

Virginia Beach PD Cadet Challenge

VIRGINIA BEACH, Va. (WAVY) — Some local high school students got an early education on law enforcement Wednesday.

The Virginia Police Department’s Cadet Challenge took students to try out ECPI University’s new augmented reality simulator, which is called a Milo Range Pro v4. It’s a system designed to make use-of-force and firearms training more realistic.

“While it may seem like a shooting simulator, the Milo offers so much more,” said ECPI University Associate Dean of Criminal Justice Ife Alexander-Caines. “It is an excellent tool for the development of communication and critical thinking skills, especially when working as a team.”

Using “the Milo” will help the students learn how to make the right call in the moment.
