DPSST Seeks Role Players
Role-playing is an activity in which participants assume the role of another person and act it out. In a DPSST role play situation, participants will be given a structured scenario, specific written guidelines, and performance objectives to reach a predetermined result.
Role-playing is designed to aid the Public Safety Professional in promoting understanding of others and developing critical survival skills. This is accomplished by emphasizing "scenario-based training" utilizing a wide range of training simulations—one of which is the role player.
Training simulations re-create real-life demands that officers will face on the job thus ensuring a better-trained and better-equipped officer graduating from the Academy. A role player will test the training of an officer and afford him/her the opportunity to develop critical thinking, decision making, and assertiveness skills.

If you are interested in becoming a role player, please contact Human Resources for an application.
