Louisville Restricts Pursuits In New Policy
November 29, 2012 by Police Driving
Louisville Metro Police Chief Steve Conrad announced Wednesday that his department was revising its pursuit policy to reduce the risk from collisions in car chases that have killed eight people and injured at least 77 since 2007.
Conrad said the new policy will mandate that police can only chase suspects if they are being sought for a violent felony. Previously police could chase suspects by car for any felony, whether violent or not.
