'Tactical village' sought to provide boost in police training
from Houston Chronicle
The mock village looked like a Hollywood set equipped with video cameras and an open roof. Actual police officers apprehended fictional bad guys while trainers and supervisors observed from a catwalk. The films created in the Washington, D.C., police training facility provided critical information about tactical successes and errors before potentially deadly events in real life, such as the active shooters who terrorized the Houston area's Memorial neighborhood and West University Place municipality in 2016.
