In Police Standard Operating Procedures

It is recommended that your procedures manual include a written policy that addresses the use of road spike systems or tire deflation devices (spike strips, stopsticks, etc.). This procedure should include guidelines on deployment, safety precautions, reporting, and other appropriate information. Officers that have not been trained with these devices should not be authorized to deploy or otherwise utilize them. Spike, Stop Sticks, Tire, Road, PSOP-028
