What Can Go Wrong?! Lightfoot Tells Cops to Stop ‘Foot Pursuits’ of Criminals in Chicago

The Chicago Police Department is now urging officers to avoid “foot pursuits” of people committing violent crimes; saying chasing suspects is “one of the most dangerous actions” cops can engage in.

“Because foot pursuits are one of the most dangerous actions that police officers can engage in, we cannot afford to wait any longer to put a policy in place that regulates them,” Mayor Lori Lightfoot said in a statement. “The important parameters outlined in this policy will not only protect our officers, the public and potential suspects during foot pursuits, but it also serves as a step forward in our mission to modernize and reform our police department.”
