CLEVELAND, OH (WOIO) –
Cleveland Police Chief Calvin Williams announces revisions to the department’s current vehicle pursuit policy Thursday afternoon during a live press conference.
CPD says this review began about 18 months ago and the pursuit policy has been revised on three other occasions. Key revisions include clear definitions of responsibilities and restrictions for all officers involved in vehicle pursuits.
Chief Williams says there will be limits on when pursuit will be authorized with a strong emphasis on team work and the new policy has a strict prohibition on self dispatch.
The policy now only authorizes two zone cars to engage in pursuit
“Revisions in policy will be paired with training. We will train on policy; every officer on the Division,” says Chief Williams.
The chief also stated that the community should know the Cleveland Police Department is committed to making sure they deliver the best possible service to the community.
