Real Pursuits

Real police pursuits happen every single day!

We’ll update this page regularly. We use Google web bots to search newspapers and the Internet to find stories and links. Some pursuits are certainly necessary, but many truly are not. The links below are just random samples from these internet searches.
We track the news every day to understand how this issue impacts families across the world. It’s amazing, frightening and often disheartening. Read a few, because in many cases another innocent person was victimized, hurt or killed.
You can help fight unnecessary pursuits by joining our cause at PursuitForChange.org. Visit today to learn more.

Paul Farris and Walid Chahine died in 2007.
They did not need to.

After more than 10 years of posting links to real #PoliceChases, we have decided to stop. We will, however, continue to track these dangerous pursuits daily, so feel free to contact us if you need specific information or links.
Please see our tweets (through 3/7/2019) showing many, many examples of unnecessary #PoliceChases. New (beginning 3/8/2019) pursuit links will be posted on our Facebook Page https://www.facebook.com/PursuitForChange/
