Where do the role players for the tactical training scenarios come from and can I be one?
The Mock Prison Riot is a very dynamic event. The venue itself and the use of role players tremendously enhance realism for training and technology demonstrations/evaluations. Again, the Mock Prison Riot is not open to the general public or the media. Fellow team members and officers/observers themselves make outstanding role players because they understand the importance of the participating team meetings its training objectives. They also have the experience necessary to offer quality feedback if a new technology is deployed during the scenario. Generally, team members and observers will offer to role play for other teams during scenarios. These role players are professionals in public safety.
