document Simunition Safety

In Police Standard Operating Procedures

In an effort to provide reality/scenario-based training many departments utilize simunitions or similar equipment in their use of force or related training. It is recommended that a department’s procedures manual include written policy that applies to all individuals present and/or participating in any training conducted by or for the department, including department personnel, other law enforcement agency’s personnel, or others. These procedures should include general firearms safety, development of a safety plan, scenarios and role-play considerations, mishap procedures, and other guidelines as needed.
