document Vehicle Pursuits

In Police Standard Operating Procedures

Vehicle pursuits are one of the most dangerous and libelous actions a police officer can be involved in. It is recommended that agencies adopt a written policy that addresses this critical area, to include widely recognized “restrictive” guidelines, and annual training for all officers. Policy considerations should include initiation and continuation of a pursuit, responsibilities of officers, pursuit tactics, reporting, and administrative review.
