ELIZABETHTOWN, Ky. (WDRB) -- In tense, real-world situations, police and civilians don't always agree on the outcomes of police shootings.

Some departments use a simulator to train for those situations, and the Elizabethtown Police Department invited a WDRB News crew down to see how it works.

Officer Chris Denham ran through the department's "Response to Resistance Simulator," which helps train officers on proper use of force.

Denham said their training means police will look at situations and their surroundings differently than civilians.

Watch the full video of the simulation above.
