Chicago Police will no longer be allowed to chase police on foot

Chicago police officers will no longer be permitted to chase people on foot solely because they run away or they’ve committed minor offenses, the department announced Tuesday, more than a year after two-foot pursuits ended with officers fatally shooting a 13-year-old boy and 22-year-old man.

The new policy grasps closely to a draft policy put in place after those shootings and gives the division something it has never been put in place: permanent rules about when officers can and can’t engage in an activity that can endanger themselves, those they’re chasing, and bystanders.

“The impact on crime has been studied (and) we can look back at what has made officers safer, has made communities safer for over a decade,” Chicago Police Superintendent David Brown told reporters at a press briefing on the policy, which he anticipates to be in place by the end of the summer after all officers obtain training.
