The mayor of Wellford, SC has prohibited police from chasing criminals:
The Mayor of Wellford is defending her policy which bans police officers in that city from chasing suspects. Sallie Peake says the policy also includes vehicle chases along with pursuits on foot.
A memo issued on September 2nd from Peake to all Wellford officers reads:
“As of this date, there are to be no more foot chases when a suspect runs. I do not want anyone chasing after any suspects whatsoever.“ . . .
Peake says she issued the mandate because several officers have been injured during chases, driving up insurance costs for the town.
