Chattanooga Police Unveil New Training Simulator

CHATTANOOGA, Tenn. (WDEF) – At their press conference today, Chattanooga Police unveiled a new police driving training simulator.

This is being housed inside of their headquarters on Amnicola Highway.

The simulator allows trainees to simulate driving in emergency conditions in a variety of scenarios.

It also can simulate the various types of police vehicles such as sedans, SUVs and motorcycles.

Assistant Police Chief Jerri Sutton said, “This simulator was purchased for the purpose of training our officers, training them more frequently, lessening the expense that we pay on vehicles and maintenance, and also making the community safe. Because obviously, when you have more well-trained officers, you’re able to keep the community safe.”

The simulator was created by L-Three Harris.

They created their own simulation physics separate from other driving simulations like I-Racing.
