Police pursuits: When does the end justify the means?

Research output: Contribution to journalOnline ResourceResearch

Abstract

The carnage in Melbourne’s CBD on Friday, in which five pedestrians died after being hit by a vehicle driven by a wanted offender, has again highlighted the issue of police pursuits.

Any policy governing police pursuits must balance the need to apprehend offenders with community safety. So what is the appropriate balance? And have Australian jurisdictions got it right?
