Stay Cool in the Heat of the Chase

Police vehicle pursuit is difficult enough without letting out-of-control emotions get in the way.


Is there a sure fire way to avoid getting caught up in pursuit fixation, or body alarm response? Not really. But there are steps you can take to enhance your ability to control this perfectly natural reaction to the tension of a high stress encounter. Then, the next time some so-and-so decides to take off on you, you'll be in better shape to safely and effectively run him to ground, and hook him up.

Stay safe, and wear your vest! (and Buckle Up!)
