HIGH SPEED CHASES: IN PURSUIT OF A BALANCED POLICY

High-speed police chases are a serious matter that have become a concern for citizens, police administrators, city managers, and legal advisers. It is an issue which deserves the same degree of attention as deadly force, yet if one turns to research to ascertain the causes, frequency and consequences of pursuit, one finds that little research has been done on the subject, and the existing research is of questionable quality. Such research is briefly reviewed in this article and recommendations are made for better information data collection which would be of great assistance in further policy formulations and modification.
