Vehicle Pursuit Reporting Software
Vehicle Pursuits are one of the top liabilities agency leaders face. According to the Bureau of Justice Statistics, every year law enforcement is involved in more than 50,000 pursuits, and each day one person is killed as the result of a pursuit. Sadly, in one-third of these cases, it is an innocent bystander that is the victim. These statistics emphasize the importance for each law enforcement agency to uphold a pursuit policy that specifies the agency’s pursuit guidelines. It is equally important that officers receive proper training and ensure all pursuits are properly documented.
“It is a top priority for us to get a comprehensive risk management plan in place, and addressing traffic accidents has to be a big part of that. We need to look at what kind of training, supervision and policies could be implemented to prevent these accidents.”
-Richard Drooyan, president of the Los Angeles Police Commission
Investing in a quality vehicle pursuit documentation software solution ensures that vehicle pursuits are thoroughly documented, including:
- Justification for the pursuit
- Why it was initiated
- Whether a supervisor monitored the pursuit
- Traffic and weather conditions at the time of the pursuit
- If the pursuit was justified based on the offense committed
Vehicle pursuit software allows for statistical analysis of your agency’s pursuit data, as well as identifying officers with the highest occurrence of agency pursuits.
