Police Pursuit resulted in injury in Bay of Plenty

15 June 2020

The Authority oversaw a Police investigation involving officers who recommenced a pursuit which had been abandoned. The pursuit ended after the fleeing driver crashed and was then arrested. Police determined the officers involved should not have re-engaged the pursuit post-abandonment as those decisions were contrary to Police Fleeing Driver policy. These matters were addressed with the staff involved. The Authority agrees with the Police findings and outcome.
