    Unless it's a bank robber who just held up a bank or a wanted murderer or escapee of course.
    It seems like we're limited by a similar policy and I won't go into much detail except to say that if our grubs want to know what our Pursuit Policy is, they can file a Freedom of Information request and pay for that info.
    If at first you don't succeed, remove all evidence of your attempt.

      same here. if you dont pull over or run for any reason we will pursue you till we catch.

        Same here. As far as what we tell dispatch...location only. That is all they need to know.
        "Laws that forbid the carrying of arms. . . disarm only those who are neither inclined nor determined to commit crimes. . . Such laws make things worse for the assaulted and better for the assailants; they serve rather to encourage than to prevent homicides, for an unarmed man may be attacked with greater confidence than an armed man." - Thomas Jefferson

          Some guys say; "I'm trying to catch up with a vehicle". That way it's not a pursuit...yet

              How long? Depends on the street, speed limit, traffic conditions, etc.

              I had a guy who did exactly what you just said. I thought he was either drunk or texting, I could see his eyes looking down in his mirror. I followed him for almost a mile with the party lights and siren going and just as I keyed up to put it out over the radio he jerked to the left and stopped.

              Seems I'd finally woken him up...

              Anyway I've had a judge tell a woman she could be guilty of fleeing after she didn't stop for 0.6 miles with me behind her. She was only charged with resisting and failiure to ID, but the judge pointed out to her that her behavior could have resulted in a felony.

                My agency has a fairly liberal pursuit policy...it's up to the discretion of the officer and supervisor to cancel it if and when it becomes dangerous. Our department recognizes people don't flee for no reason.

                It usually starts with "vehicle failing to yield" or "attempting to overtake a vehicle fleeing from me at a high rate of speed" and then direction and location. We don't have a clear cut rule, I usually give it a *reasonable* amount of time before I declare a pursuit. I had a FTY that went for 0.9 miles, full code 3 with no sign of yielding. Turned out to be a misdemenor case of HUA, and a 21806(a) CVC cite (FTY to Emergency Vehicle) it wasn't offically a pursuit.
