About Mobile Police Training Structures
Scott Giovannetti, a twenty-three year police veteran, started Mobile Police Training Structures after a demonstration of the “Structure Fire Simulator” system by Mobile Fire-Rescue Training. Scott, with an extensive police training background and credentials, immediately saw an opportunity to modify the Fire Simulator for use in police services training. A partnership was established with Mobile Fire-Rescue Training, followed by a research and development partnership with the Toronto Police Service, to assist with evaluating the new Mobile Police Training Structure (MPTS) prototype.
The prototype was highly successful, with eight modifications being identified and implemented to meet the dynamic and unique needs of the Police Training community. The revised MPTS saw its first installation at the new, leading-edge Toronto Police Service training centre and has served as a benchmark demonstration facility for the system ever since.
Several police services have since implemented the system, with a number of others currently in evaluation. This leading-edge tool now assists police service educators with a highly flexible and innovative environment to meet demanding and changing learning objectives. The patented bracket system allows for rapid set-up, take-down and reconfiguration – allowing educators to maximize training time and budgets while challenging their students in an immersive environment.
