On March 8, 2010 Howard County Chief Deputy Eric Wakefield attended a one day Pursuit Policy Training Workshop.
The workshop was held at the Black River Technical College in Pocahontas, Ar.
The workshops objectives were:
Discuss US Supreme Court decision and State specific statutes that have impacted and governed vehicular pursuit operations.
Discuss the components of the IACP vehicular pursuit policy guide.
Compare our agency's current pursuit policy with the IACP pursuit guidelines.
Develop an action plan for our agency that supports vehicular pursuit operations and addresses any weak or missing areas within the current pursuit policy.
