LAW-TRAIN is an European Commission funded project aimed at fighting international drug-trafficking by developing a virtual interrogation training system. The training system is developed in a collaborative action by universities, national governments and professional enterprises.
The virtual gaming platform will allow law enforcement units to practice the interrogation of suspects in a multicultural and virtual reality context. Through extensive research in the field of computer science and criminology the mixed reality gaming platform makes it possible to generate characters with changing attributes and parameters. Based on these demographic variables, so called “Virtual Suspects” can be generated, which will give rise to multiple interrogation scenarios in a close to realistic environment. Because of the virtual nature of the system, the simulator will be accessible from any country at any given time. To improve the training results, so called “Intervention Agents” will follow the practice sessions online and give real-time feedback to trainees.
