The St. Martin Parish Sheriff's Office shooting range now has a new state of the art firearms training simulator.

The system will be used to train deputies during their in-service and for specialized training.

It consists of five screens set up in a 300 degree format.

"It enables us to do real life scenarios with our deputies," said Major Ginny Higgins, spokesperson for St. Martin Parish Sheriff's Office. "One of the positive aspects of it is that it can pretty much mimic any situation they may encounter."
