“Training Facility App”
About this Project:
“The Training Facility is an application designed to assist newly recruited officers with their training processes. The goal of the Training Facility is to give police officers a way to enhance their training, including providing de-stressing tools, to help support and advance their career as an officer.” - Team the Rugrats
This team had many user groups of interest. They were interested in officers, firefighters and senior citizens. We were able to secure an interview with Officer Crispin. After the interview the team met to synthesize the interview and they made the decision to move forward with creating an app for police officers. They brainstormed themes from the interview and came up with a series of challenges that police officers experience daily.
Once they decided to focus on the issue of training for officers, they came up with sketches and based on the sketch with the most votes, they moved on to the design stage. They created their app flow and shared that with Officer Crispin for initial feedback before moving onto designing the first round of wire-frames.

Feedback from the Judges:
I believe this app could be finished and sold to departments across the country!
I would like to see inclusion of short interviews with different officers (both male and female) somehow included in the app as part of the training. They could talk about in the field experiences where they used some of these meditation methods to stay calm, and how the interaction was successful. These interviews could be very powerful since the every day person has no idea what police officers need to do and how much stress is on them.
