TEMPE, Ariz., Nov. 17, 2015 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- VirTra Systems (OTC Pink:VTSI), a leading provider of use of force simulators and firearms training simulators, today announced that it has recently received an award from the Victoria Police, the primary law enforcement agency of the State of Victoria, Australia, for just over $1 million.
VirTra will supply, install and maintain multiple units of its industry leading V-300TM simulator system. The systems employ multiple screens, realistic video training content and an electric impulse return fire system to simulate the stress of real-world situations – ultimately to help prepare officers in judgmental use of force encounters. Using VirTra's highly-advanced systems, officers are better prepared for hostile situations with skills honed and refined in realistic scenarios before lives are on the line.
Scott Dilullo, VirTra's Business Development Manager, said, "Our V-300TM simulator is used to improve the officers' skills and abilities in a variety of areas, including situational awareness, decision-making, verbal negotiations, de-escalation, report writing, less lethal force applications, marksmanship and firearms proficiency. The better prepared, trained and confident an officer is, the better that officer will be in handling critical high-stress encounters that could mean the difference between life or death."
Bob Ferris, Chairman and Chief Executive Officer of VirTra, commented, "We are honored to add the State of Victoria, Australia to our growing list of international customers who've selected VirTra's training simulators and accessories. One of our key strategic objectives is leveraging our extensive investment in realistic use of force and ballistically accurate marksmanship simulators for the benefit of law enforcement and other agencies throughout the world. Our award from this prominent and highly regarded international law enforcement agency supports our progress towards achieving that objective. We appreciate the opportunity to serve this new customer and look forward to exceeding their expectations while working alongside them for years to come."
