To buy pursuit-rated or not to buy pursuit-rated? It can be a point of contention. Why would you need one if your local government doesn’t allow pursuits? Is it necessary to spend the extra money on these components even if you’re not doing pursuits? The speakers will provide a look at what makes a vehicle pursuit-rated, and discuss common concerns your stakeholders and fellow officers may have.
