High-Speed Chase Policies Examined After Crashes in North Carolina

In the aftermath of two high-speed chase crashes in central North Carolina, authorities are examining the guidelines that dictate when officers are permitted to engage in pursuits.

The incidents, which occurred in Cary and Cumberland County, have raised questions about the balance between public safety and the necessity of apprehending suspects. The Wake County Sheriff's Office and the State Highway Patrol were the agencies involved in Monday's chases. In Cary, deputies pursued a suspected carjacker, while in Spring Lake, state troopers chased a vehicle theft suspect. These events have brought to light the policies that govern high-speed pursuits and the protections in place for officers and bystanders.

Experts emphasize that high-speed chases should be reserved for apprehending the most dangerous criminals, particularly when there is a significant threat to public safety. However, should a chase result in injuries to bystanders, proving an officer’s negligence in court requires a high standard of evidence.

Both Wake County and State Highway Patrol policies give officers discretion in deciding whether to continue a chase, weighing the need to apprehend the suspect against the potential dangers of the pursuit. Officers are expected to constantly evaluate factors such as the severity of the offense, traffic conditions, and weather during a chase.

The legal framework also offers protections to law enforcement officers, recognizing the inherent dangers of their profession. Injured bystanders can seek civil action against municipalities with insurance, a protection more commonly found in larger cities like Raleigh and Durham. In smaller municipalities without such insurance, officers may be immune from civil suits.
