Joey is correct...

JW, Joey is correct. This person in the vehicle that sped off, could have just committed a robbery, or some other crime that has not yet been reported. If he were to get away, he could repeat the offense, or blame someone else, or dispose of important evidence. I agree that some pursuits can be avoided, and it is completely the officers call, but... You have to consider what could happen if you let that person escape. You just really never know. A pursuit policy is probably not a good idea, simply because if an offender knows that if they hit a certain speed... then the chase will be discontinued... they will probably all do it.. Each pursuit should be maintained on a case by case basis. Also this person had a passenger. There is no way to determine at that time if she was willing, or being abducted... See what I mean?
