LOS SANTOS & BLAINE COUNTY POLICE & SHERIFFS DEPARTMENT Pursuit Policy (LE and Civilian) Purpose: In order for both the agency and public to have a better understanding of vehicle pursuits, the following information and rules are set forth. This policy order has been signed off by Chief Taylor Weitman & Sheriff Rickey Golden and shall be followed by both law enforcement and civilians. Departmental Vehicle Pursuits and Civilian Rules LSPD & BCSD Policy: 1. All deputies operating a department issued marked police vehicle shall have both lights and sirens on while in pursuit at all times. ]2. All law enforcement parties in the pursuit shall not drive with wanton disregard for the safety of the public and fellow law enforcement personnel. ]3. If your LSPD or BCSD collides with the following, it will be deemed disabled and you must inform dispatch and terminate yourself from the pursuit for good. Unless a fellow LSPD or BCSD unit from the same pursuit happens to pick you up while the pursuit is still active. The information is as follows: 1:Your vehicle collides with another vehicle head on. 2:Your two or more of your vehicle tires are disabled. 3:If the speeds and recklessness of the subject fleeing place your life or the public's life in immediate danger. 4:If your vehicle collides with a tree, light pole, wall, building, etc. Over 40MPH. 4. You shall not repair your vehicle at any time during a pursuit. Even if the pursuit takes you through the mechanic shop and it is accidental. If that happens your vehicle will immediately be disabled and you are out of the pursuit. 5. If you are the solo unit in the pursuit you shall do your best to call out speeds, direction of travel, number of occupants, description of occupants, and vehicle description. 6. No power/meta gaming at all during pursuits. This means that just because you can see their name tag, it does not mean you have identified the driver. You cannot go after that player at a later time. However, if it is a subject with multiple prior contacts and you can identify them later without a reasonable doubt. You may ask a supervisor to issue a warrant for that individuals arrest. Example: Captain Weitman has dealt with Mr. Long and his girlfriend multiple times, they flee in the vehicle they are known to always drive and the Captain is able to get a visual of the driver and passenger. They both match the description of the get away. A supervisor may be contacted to request to issue a warrant for both of their arrests. This does not mean they will be booked into jail, however; there is a reasonable amount of information known to tilt the pendulum to issue a warrant. 7. If there is an unmarked unit that calls in the pursuit and a marked unit joins the pursuit. The marked unit will take lead and over take the unmarked unit in the pursuit. 8. If you are a double unit in the pursuit, the passenger seated deputy will take charge of the callouts for the pursuit in regards to travel, speeds, description, etc. The same applies if multiple units are in the pursuit, the second vehicle in the pursuit will take command of the callouts.
