Active shooting simulation for Portland Police

Crisis Simulations International : 20 January, 2009  (Application Story)
US police take delivery of shooting simulation system from CSI to train for siege situations
Crisis Simulations International has delivered its state-of-the-art "active shooter" simulation to Portland Police Bureau - Training Division in support of public safety initiatives.

As the tragedies of school and mall shootings become more common across the country, the Portland Police Bureau has taken a strong proactive step in preparing its commanding sergeants to effectively respond to them.

Portland Police Bureau has completed the installation of a first-of-its-kind "active shooter" simulation and training directed to better preparing its commanding sergeants to make the critical decisions that lives depend on. The "active shooter" simulation and training was developed for Portland Police Bureau by Crisis Simulations International. Using CSI's proprietary DXMA technology, this scenario was developed by CSI using Portland Police Bureau Directives, nationally accepted "active shooter" protocols and Department of Homeland Security HSEEP guidelines.

"We selected CSI because their simulations and underlying technology is based on the current thinking being done in cognitive science…how time-critical public safety decisions are made and how this information can be used as an effective learning experience," said Commander Eric Hendricks.

"What makes this training different from traditional public safety classroom or field exercises is the use of our proprietary simulation technology that allows the users to track how individuals react to a near real-time active shooter event," says Dennis Damore, Senior Director of CSI. Damore also said, "Key elements of the simulation will focus on how individuals handle complicated and interdependent decisions when effective choices are a matter of life or death."

CSI creates real-time simulations that build leadership decision-making skills and stress-tests crisis response plans of both private and public sector organizations. Founded in 2004, CSI has extensive experience in crisis management, war gaming, educational simulation, educational design, and executive management.
