Advocacy against unnecessary police pursuits

Dots

So, why do we care? Because Paul Farris and Walid Chahine should both be alive today and Kate Hoyt should be living a normal life.

How long are we going to continue to live with bad judgment, poor / inconsistent police pursuit policies and a lack of public outrage about these pursuits.

Pursuits, like the one that killed Paul and Walid and that so seriously injured Kate, happen every single day - and someone else's son, daughter, mother, father, family of friend dies every single day.

Advocacy [ad-vuh-kuh-see]

Advocacy is a political process by an individual or a large group which normally aims to influence public-policy and resource allocation decisions within political, economic, and social systems and institutions; it may be motivated from moral, ethical or faith principles or simply to protect an asset of interest. Advocacy can include many activities that a person or organization undertakes including media campaigns, public speaking, commissioning and publishing research or poll or the 'filing of friend of the court briefs'.  From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

You can help

You can be an advocate for change. Perhaps a change made in your city, town, county or state may ultimately save the life of someone dear to you. We are not advocating the complete elimination of police pursuits because sometimes such a pursuit is necessary. But a high speed pursuit should NEVER be as a result of a simple traffic misdemeanor and it must ALWAYS be broken off when it crosses into densely populated areas. Contact us for more information.
