INDICE DE GALERIAS
DES MOINES, Iowa (AP) — The Des Moines police chief wants to make sure any vehicle chases undertaken by her officers are worth the risks.
Chief Judy Bradshaw told The Des Moines Register (http://dmreg.co/1dLccvq) on Monday that she won't ban chases, but she will be tightening the rules regarding them.
Bradshaw says she wants to make it easier for officers and their supervisors to call off chases in dangerous situations.
Under the current policy, Des Moines officers can chase a vehicle if its driver is suspected of a felony or poses a traffic danger to others.
The newspaper says its analysis shows Des Moines police engaged in nearly twice as many car chases during the first three months of 2013 than in the same quarter last year.
