Abstract

In security/safety-critical applications, such as community policing, citizens and Law Enforcement Officers (LEOs) need a safe and realistic environment to support their learning in handling challenging situations. In this context, the use of games can prove crucial in helping citizens improve awareness and better understand the potential value that can be developed in building relationships with Law Enforcement Agencies (LEAs) providing support within a specific area.
