The Use of Force Simulator at the Abilene Police training facility gets officers prepared to face quick decisions that could save their life and the lives of citizens they are sworn to protect.

Officer Arthur Jefferson says that the simulator saves money as the machine's weapons don't require bullets like real guns do.

They are also planning on getting simulations ready of places around town to prepare officers for incidents that could happen in specific buildings.
