In an effort to reduce the number of deaths and injuries resulting from vehicle pursuits, ALERT International and IADLEST are partnering to provide a comprehensive pursuit policy program.

This effort addresses law enforcement vehicular pursuit policy issues, including factors to consider when initiating, conducting, and terminating a vehicular pursuit. Procedures discussed in pursuit policy workshops are consistent with the International Association of Chiefs of Police guidelines.

Recognizing that pursuit driving is a very dangerous activity, police departments around the United States have begun to change their perspective of pursuits and their understanding of pursuit policy and training.  This research has prompted programs such as this, which encourage departments across the country to analyze current pursuit policies and training requirements.
