I am caught between a rock and a hard place on this.
I see the point of a "No Chase" policy in such areas as Los Angeles or other large metropolitan areas, but only if they are able to pursue using aircraft.
The issue of course is cost. This is why UAV's are really the way to go when it comes to urban policing.
UAV's have a lot more Time On Station (TOS) and are able to operate at a much lower cost. Not to mention that to train a pilot is much more expensive than to traing a UAV pilot.
Rural areas though, where the money is not available for such technology, then high speed chases it is.
