“A new virtual reality (VR) training program is giving police officers the chance to virtually stand in someone else’s shoes.
The Halton Regional Police Service (HRPS) has launched a program to provide empathy-based training by simulating scenarios with people who are experiencing mental health issues.
Trainees use a VR headset to enter into a virtual world where they will have access to three different modules: autism, schizophrenia and suicide prevention.”
