Liability Instances During Police Chases

Police chases should be better managed, but establishing better policies are challenging and hard to enforce. This is due to the variety of circumstances during which police pursuits occur. For example, once a person resists pulling over or arrest, policemen are left with critical choices in order to arrest the assailant. It could be to engage in a pursuit and then fall back when a high-speed police chase  ensues. Failing to make the right decision could lead to more laws being broken and cause harm to the public.

Liabilities arise in police chases when the assailant or the police car hits other vehicles, pedestrians or crash into buildings.  Recently, an innocent bystander was killed as a result of a wild police chase in Monroe. This was probably avoidable, but unfortunately, a life was lost.

Wrongful death is just one of the outcomes of high-speed police chases along with other more serious injuries, all of which warrant civil suits against multiple parties. While this is a major problem to most law enforcers, a pursuit is at times necessary in certain circumstances.  The use of cameras in squad cars to capture police car chase videos have allowed departments to analyze techniques to prevent unnecessary damages. In similar cases, evidence found in police shooting videos posted by individuals on social media sites have been an effective tool in analysing use of brutal force.  Although there are strategies and tools police enforcement use to reduce risk to the situation, they do not always work.
