FAQs

Who works with Axon to develop VR content?

From interviews and scripting to release, every piece of content created by Axon VR is reviewed by an extensive network of training partners. This group is comprised of career clinicians, community group members, crisis intervention trainers, mental health counselors, educators, individuals from affected communities, and countless active law enforcement officers. We are committed to working with diverse training partners whose backgrounds enrich our training modules, ensuring that the content we create speaks for itself to demonstrate how using empathy leads to better outcomes for all.

What is “three degrees of freedom” vs. “six degrees of freedom” VR training?

Currently, Axon’s empathy development trainings are “three degrees of freedom” (aka “3DoF”) virtual reality modules. The real world is captured in full 360-degrees videos, allowing the user to turn around and view content that is playing in all directions. When the headset goes on, trainees are fully immersed in the perspective of someone else — and by walking in someone else’s shoes, they are exposed to the most powerful medium for empathy development. Future content may be “six degrees of freedom” (or “6DoF”), allowing users to interact differently with characters and items in the digital world. In 6DoF, users can take steps in the real world which are translated into movements in the virtual reality environment, further breaking down the brain’s ability to decipher real from computer-generated — and forming an even more impactful training experience.

How can I get access to the current empathy trainings?

Empathy training content is included in select TASER 7 plans, including the Certification Plan, and the OSP 7 and OSP 7+ packages. Agencies may also purchase the trainings a la carte, without purchasing a TASER 7 device.
