Pursuit Policies
by Geoffrey Alpert

And finally, the policy standards applied to the evaluation of a pursuit as well as to the decision to continue a pursuit needs to include the following three questions:
  1. If the pursuit were to result in injury or death, would a reasonable person understand why the pursuit occurred or was necessary?

  2. Is the need to immediately catch the suspect more important than the risk created by the pursuit?

  3. Do the dangers created by the pursuit exceed the dangers posed by letting the perpetrator escape?
