A Chicago Tribune analysis of every police shooting from 2010 through 2015 found that foot chases played a role in more than a third of the 235 cases that ended with someone wounded or killed. The Tribune consulted with PARC's Matthew Barge:
Some experts say setting guidelines on foot chases doesn't mean letting criminals run free. In fact, many departments have chosen to implement foot-chase policies to improve officer safety.
"It's a false choice to say an officer has unlimited ability to pursue subjects or we just let the bad guy go," said Matthew Barge, co-executive director of the Police Assessment Resource Center, which has helped craft and monitor policing reforms in cities across the country, including some pushed by the Justice Department.
