Glenn says, “It has everything to do with risk versus reward. In many cases, where the suspect poses no immediate danger to the public, it's the chase itself that causes the threat.

On Average...
• Crashes as a result of police chases and police response calls kill more than one person a day. One-third of the people killed are innocent bystanders.
• On average, these crashes kill one officer every six weeks.
• According to a 2004 Harborview Injury Prevention and Research Center analysis of nine years of national statistics [submitted on a voluntary basis], "One third of these pursuit fatalities occur to innocent bystanders.”


After the Chase...
Most people believe drivers who flee and are caught, go to jail. Not so. In 2008, Indiana State Police superintendent Paul Whitesell stated: If we catch and arrest, the most common sentence is probation, followed by parole or they are released because there is "no room in the inn,” i.e., prison.
