New Police Chase Policy in Des Moines

DES MOINES, Iowa (AP) --
   Des Moines' police chief has issued an updated policy that outlines when officers must end vehicle pursuits.
   The Des Moines Register says the revamped chase policy was sent to officers last week.
   The revisions include nine specific points on how to begin and end chases and the responsibilities of each vehicle and agency involved in a pursuit.
   Among the revisions is a new rule that only marked patrol vehicles may participate in chases. Also, a chase must end if the vehicle being pursued heads the wrong way on a highway, divided road or one-way street. Officer can use a parallel road to follow the suspect vehicle and resume the chase later.
