Cop that: Officers hate pursuit rules

EXCLUSIVE

Police officers are overwhelmingly opposed to Victoria’s ‘no pursuit’ laws.

A whopping 93 per cent of about 3000 officers surveyed by the police union say they want the rules scrapped, the Neil Mitchell program has revealed.

Instead, they recommend:

  • greater level of discretion
  • more authority to be vested in a pursuit co-ordinator
  • better training
  • expanded aerial support
  • investment in tools like vehicle tagging and targeted disabling devices

Police Association boss Ron Iddles told Neil Mitchell the survey results have been handed to Victoria Police.

A review is currently under review, and Mr Iddles is quietly confident of a positive result.

‘The [pursuit] policy needs to be re-written,’ he said.

‘I don’t want to pre-empt it, but I think there will be some adjustment to the policy.’
