This paper aims to provide an outline of an ongoing research project that is funded by the H2020 programme, the TARGET: Training Augmented Reality Generalised Environment Toolkit. The project addresses the need for innovative serious gaming solutions for police and other security agents to train in low probability/high impact events. The ambition of the project is to deliver a Pan-European serious gaming platform that combines Mixed, Virtual and Augmented Reality and content for training, and also incorporates methodology to assess the skills and competencies of trainees. In addition the paper provides a description of the technology components and of the six training content scenarios that TARGET has developed up to now.
