Ontario Police are taking firearm and driving training this week on video simulators. They were provided free of charge by the Ohio Attorney General's Peace Officer Training Academy. Ontario City Hall's Community Room has the firearm simulator, with officers making split-second decisions about whether to use deadly force. A large trailer is parked outside where officers are using a simulator to make high-risk traffic stops and engage in high-speed pursuits. They're also learning how to react when a law-abiding motorist doesn't hear the siren and pulls out in front of them. Ontario Police Lieutenant Rob Griefenstine suggested getting the simulators, and Chief Rod Smith readily agreed, saying his officers have no deficiencies that must be corrected, but they can never get too much training. Officers from other police departments, such as Crestline, Galion, and Shelby are also using the simulators this week.
