Decision Tactical provides training for Law enforcement

Law Enforcement

First and foremost, D-TAC is a law enforcement training facility. We offer realistic, fully immersive training environments and courses for first responders and security professionals.

The Training

Law Enforcement

Engage in de-escalation and crisis situation training in mock buildings and realistic environments designed specifically for law enforcement, security officers and first responders.

Our Training Principles:

  • Trainees should not be limited to the confines of traditional simulators, which limit movement and reinforce bad tactical habits.
  • Police trainers should be trainers, not simulator operators.
  • Unreliable and unrealistic simulators get ridiculed by trainees. Immersion in realistic environments is critical for effective training.
  • De-escalation training must include immediate two-way responsive conversations that are not limited to pre-recorded options.
  • Repetition is key to learning and behavior modification, so training must be affordable enough to be repeatable.

The Difference

A Revolutionary Facility

D-TAC built the world’s most immersive scenario-based learning facility for first responders with the guidance of police subject matter experts.

All training takes place in our 43,000-square-foot Sanford facility, which features constantly evolving and customized scenarios that address critical decision-making skills. We also provide an onsite classroom for seminars and complementing training.

The Outcome

Better Training for All Officers

Advanced training is only offered to elite units, like SWAT teams, which make up only 8% of law enforcement officers nationally. The remaining 92% of officers receive a tiny fraction of this training due to time and budget restrictions.

D-TAC overcomes both restrictions with breakthrough technology and operational efficiencies that provide better training at a fraction of the cost and time of alternatives.

Revenue generated from civilian visits is used to subsidize law enforcement training.

  • Professional Traffic Stops
