    I've been a cop for about 5.5 years. I've been in about 5 vehicle pursuits and enough foot pursuits that I don't remember them all. Foot pursuits at my department/city aren't quite as I was expecting them to be. I've had less than 10 "solo tackles." It's usually more of a team effort. Chase the guy til he ducks into some woods or something and meanwhile the other units in the area set up a perimeter. Then wait for Air support and K9. It's a beautiful thing when it all comes together like that.

    My funniest foot pursuit was a transgender prostitute (I was told that I should not have said "crossdresser" on the radio). I had no backup, and he/she lost me in some woods. He was wearing a mini skirt, but he hiked it up as he was running and I remember seeing cheeks flappin' in the breeze as he gained more and more distance on me. Of course, the rest of my shift teased me mercilessly until 2 weeks later two more of my shiftmates chased him and confirmed that guy/gal is Usain Bolt in a skirt. We caught him that night after setting a perimeter.

      Still my all-time favorite.
