Initiating a police pursuit has significant consequences if not properly managed. Police pursuits also expose officers and their agencies with a great deal of exposure to liability, not to mention the risks of serious injury and death to everyone involved.
Recognizing the many risk factors must be considered by supervisors and command officers who authorize these high risk and sometimes dangerous incidents. Supervisors must not only understand their agency’s pursuit policy, but also be willing and courageous to make that “unpopular” decision to terminate the pursuit.
This robust four-hour training will discuss the following topics:
– Command & Control
– Risks & Hazards
– Decision Making
– The will to “Terminate”
– Case Studies
– The Unexpected Termination
– Trends in Technology
*All students are encouraged to bring a copy of their agency pursuit policy and a laptop.
