document Emergency / Non-Emergency Vehicle Response

In Police Standard Operating Procedures

Police officers respond to both emergency and non-emergency calls for service on a daily basis. Officers are required to respond to these calls with due regard for safety to eliminate the risk of death or injury which may result from reckless and/or negligent behavior. As these responses continue to be one of most dangerous and libelous actions a police officer can become involved, it is recommended that your procedures manual include a written policy that establishes guidelines concerning the safe and proper operation of police vehicles specifically in response to emergency and non-emergency calls.
