Video game offers Army training on sexual assault

LEAVENWORTH – An interactive video game has been developed to train Army command teams on how to respond to accusations of sexual harassment and sexual assault.

ELITE SHARP CTT was introduced for Army use earlier this month. Army members can download the game for free.

The Leavenworth Times reports the game was developed with help from the Games for Training Program at Fort Leavenworth.

Maj. Greg Pavlichko, who heads the program, acknowledges some of the language in the interactive game is colorful, but says that makes the game more realistic.

Lt. Col. Jeff Bevington says officials involved with the ELITE game are now trying to get the word out.

Bevington says “we are trying to educate the Army on this tool.”
