So, why do we care? Because Paul Farris, Walid Chahine and thousands of other innocent bystanders should still be alive today.
How long must we live with weak and inconsistent police pursuit policies. Why is there no and a lack of public outrage about pursuit-related deaths and injuries of the innocent?
Pursuits, like the one that killed Paul and Walid and that so seriously injured Katelyn Hoyt, happen every single day – and someone else’s son, daughter, mother, father, friend dies every single day.
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’.

You Can Help
You can be an advocate for change. Perhaps a change made in your city, town, county or state may 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 dangerous pursuit should NEVER occur because of simple traffic misdemeanors and pursuits must ALWAYS be broken off when it crosses into densely populated areas.
