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?
Your initial post should be at least 250 words in length. Support your claims with examples from required material(s) and/or other scholarly resources, and properly cite any references. Respond to at least two of your classmates’ posts by Day 7.
