Project description

English EN

VR training for police response to emergencies

Police officers are typically the first emergency personnel to arrive to the scene of a high-risk or crisis situation. Emergency preparedness is vital in such cases. Oftentimes, police officers are forced to make decisions in dangerous high-stakes situations with ambiguous information under severe time constraints. The EU-funded SHOTPROS project will investigate the impact of psychological and contextual human factors on decision-making in high-risk operational situations. It will use virtual reality to measure the impact of these factors and design better training modules for police officers. The aim is to improve their overall performance under stress and to minimise the use of force while maximising safety.
