Police-Pursuit Through the Eyes of a Motorbike Officer


Recommended Posts

Now here's something you don't get to see every day. The Florence Police Department (in the U.S., not Italy) released footage captured from a helmet-mounted camera of an officer riding a motorcycle in pursuit of a motorist who failed to stop after being signaled by the police.

The incident occurred earlier this week, on Monday, April 4, with the police department issuing the following statement about the recorded incident:

"On 04-08-13 Florence Police Motor Officer Troy Gurley attempted to stop a vehicle driven by Justin O. Sanders, 24, for traffic violations. The vehicle refused to stop. Mr. Sanders led police on a chase through the City of Florence and was subsequently charged with various drug, firearms, and traffic violations. Mr. Sanders is presumed innocent until proven guilty."

They need better comms kit. I did a conference call with a customer on the way to work yesterday and no one knew I was on my motorbike ;)

The scary part of that chase for me was when the car stopped half way through. The cop was then really exposed as the car could have just been put into reverse.
