Question description

Adherence to Policy

After reading Emergency Driving and Pursuits: The Officer’s Perspective (pp. 1-7), explain the importance of establishing pursuit policies at the local or department level. In your discussion, address the following:

  • What must the department or agency do to limit liability in the event of injury or death resulting from a police pursuit-related collision?  
  • What actions are necessary for establishing a pursuit training program?
  • Who are the stakeholders for such a program?  
  • Should law enforcement agencies place more significant restrictions on police-related vehicle pursuits?  Why or why not?  
  • How would these restrictions impact vehicle pursuit training?

Our discussion first individuals response tell the bad and good of post list reference

(Am) In order to limit the liability of injury or death, agencies could redraft their policies and procedures, along with making it a requirement that officers attend classroom training for vehicle pursuits. Officers should not only be educated on how to pursue a vehicle, they should also know when to pursue (Hill, 2002). The training should include the new officers and those who are veterans. It was mentioned earlier that officers needed to be educated on when to pursue a vehicle. They also need to be instructed on the pursuit tactics, policy, and liability (Hill, 2002). In addition, officers should be aware of the statistics regarding vehicle pursuits. This way they know how often situations happen when there is a pursuit. The stakeholders for a pursuit-training program would be the police department, the public, and elected officials. Each of these stakeholders has an interest in the community and keeping the officers and the public safe. I do believe that law enforcement agencies should place significant restrictions on police-related vehicle pursuits. I say this because a fleeing individual not only puts himself or herself at risk; they also put other citizens and the pursuing officers at risk. There are some recommendations that can be put towards vehicle pursuits. Agencies could certify their officers after completing the training, time how long it takes to get to a call, and could only chase those who are considered to be violent felons (Schultz, Hudak, & Alpert, 2009). Any restrictions that are put on vehicle pursuits would enable officers to make better decisions and to keep themselves and others safe.
