Police pursuit legislation introduced

House Bill 728, authored by Representative Earle Banks, would require law enforcement agencies that conduct pursuits, to have written policies and force them to address situations in which those chases go into other jurisdictions.

“We need some type of supervision, not just I write a policy that I like,” said Banks. “Well I’d like to make a policy my neighbors can live with that police departments in pursuit are good neighbors and we work together as good neighbors to catch the criminals.”
