Message from our President
To those that proudly wear the badge, we are forever grateful for the risks that you take every day to protect and serve our communities. And for those that have been lost to senseless murder, their bravery and dedication will never be forgotten.
These are without a doubt very difficult times, but I’m confident that with constant positive support to our men and women in blue that law enforcement and the communities they protect will become stronger than ever before.
From my team to yours, we thank you, we support you and we respect the job you take on every single day to keep America safe.
Trevor A. Fischbach
As officers approached the vehicle during a traffic stop, the vehicle fled. StarChase was deployed and the vehicle was located several blocks away.
Ingrained in every law enforcement officer are a few basic tenets: serve and protect, and catch evildoers before they can do more harm. It’s what they are paid to do, often risking their lives to accomplish those two goals.
An analysis done by the International Association of Chiefs of Police, in conjunction with the National Institute of Justice, revealed that 91% of all reported police chases are initiated over non-violent crimes. Simple traffic violations (e.g. rolling a stop sign, or driving with a busted taillight) account for nearly half of these.

A recent California appeals court decision could have significant ramifications for police departments by making them less immune from claims for injuries or death occurring during a high-speed chase.
