  • Model "No-Pursuit" Policy

    Hello,

    I am looking for a myriad of no-pursuit policies from different jurisdications. I would like to see the thoughts of other PD's and implement or discredit them when writing our new pursuit policy.

    Would you be willing to email me a copy of your no pursuit policy?

    I've done a search of this on officer.com but could not find actual department policies.

    Sorry, we don't have a no pursuit policy.

      "no pursuit" policies invite crime into your jurisdiction as it screams..."We are a 'liability based policing' model and will not chase you when you commit crime in our jurisdiction"

            Our no pursuit policy requires you turn in your badge and gun. Because when you not a cop there are no pursuits. Until then it's our job to chase bad guys using common sense discretion.

              Saint Joseph, MO PD has a limited pursuit policy..... A SGT will get on the radio and ask what you are pursuing for.....and how fast speeds are.....and will terminate if they feel it's a unsafe chase.....or if they think is a BS pursuit.....

                We have a county wide no pursuit policy. Its semi-enforced and it all depends on what they are running from. Example: a person running from a traffic stop is not going to get chased very far before we have to shut down, but the guy with the gun who just robbed the corner store can be chased until he runs out of gas.

                I hate it and even after I shut down I will follow as long as possible and try to re-engage if I can.

                    I could be wrong, but I've never heard of an agency that has a 100% no pursuit policy. I know that most, if not all, restrict pursuits in certain situations. Does anyone know of any agency that won't allow officers to pursue for any reason, even violent felonies?

                        Policy #1. No pursuits. NONE!

                        That should do it.
                        Being a good street cop is like coming to work in a wet suit and peeing in your pants. It's a nice warm feeling, but you're the only one who knows anything has happened.

                          "No Pursuit" policies make me sad

                          Thank god my Chief is old school. I'll pursue at 130mph for a tag light violation.

                            Wow.

                            All this non-pursuit policies. I imagine at some point a PD is going to get spanked because they terminate a pursuit because of "traffic only" and later find the body in the trunk and Mohammad with the bombs.

                            Added: My last pursuit for "traffic only" was at 3am and my sergeant had balls and let me continue. He wrecked out. Had felony warrants and we found the loaded shotgun in the trunk that he had used for a previous armed robberies.

                            No one runs because they don't want a speeding ticket.

                              I know Savannah Metro says they will only chase for forcible felonies, but will try to call off those, even if they are wanted for running over an officer.

                              The county PD for my town has a very weird policy. One shift will chase for almost anything, based on the conditions, while another has to get permission from the LT to even run code 3.
