WDRB did an amazing story on EPD's training after one of their reporters experienced our response to resistance simulator training! This story really highlights the dangers of our profession and the reality that police often have to make critical decisions in seconds with very little previous intel. This video also points out that police, because of their training and experience, see much more than a typical civilian in these deadly encounters.
