State Panel Begins Study of Police Chases

Here's a story of possible interest from today's Richmond Times-Dispatch...
"The Virginia State Crime Commission today began a study that could lead to new laws or policies governing police chases or emergency police responses.

"The effort was prompted by the 2008 death of a Fairfax County woman killed when a police car ran a traffic light while not using its siren and the death earlier this year of a Richmond clergyman killed by a car that sped through a stop sign while fleeing police."

The Virginia State Crime Commission
proposes and recommends legislation to the Virginia General Assembly.
