Since Axon VR Training is easily deployed and transported to any location where training is taking place, be that a dedicated facility or the roll-call room, it can help make better use of this time. Instead of officers waiting for their active training time, they can learn in 5- to 15-minute segments on topics that help build practical and interpersonal skills, and that they otherwise may not be exposed to in traditional curriculum. Repurposing even a small portion of unproductive training hours translates into actual agency savings. *Based on estimate of 1.5 downtime hours per officer repurposed for VR Training; may vary by agency Other benefits such as better retention and confidence in skills can also translate into more prepared officers who lower the agency's risk of a misconduct issue. Additionally, research shows that spaced repetition promotes effective learning 5 , so VR's low time commitment and easy setup means it can become a regular part of existing operations with more frequent use. TRAINING FOR THE FUTURE Law enforcement is increasingly being asked to train more, but one way to accomplish this is to train smarter. VR can significantly accelerate agency training programs, and Axon is just getting started. Our vision is to make training widely available, applicable, engaging and adaptable.
