Simulation Experiment (SIMEX) is an immersive virtual reality environment that allows real operators (e.g., police officers, mental health professionals, subjects, etc.) to interact within a representative environment to explore the interactions between people and technology.
In April 2021 HSSEDI conducted the Law Enforcement Use of Force SIMEX for the DHS Office for State and Local Law Enforcement to explore the factors and scenarios that contribute to escalating use of force.
S&T is proud to serve the men and women sworn to protect all of us. The following is a select sampling of programs showcasing our work in support of law enforcement.
The DHS S&T recently partnered with public safety agencies from the City of Birmingham and Jefferson County, Alabama, for the NGFR – Birmingham Shaken Fury Operational Experimentation.
