Emergency Response: When an officer operates an authorized police vehicle in a manner that is substantially outside of a normal traffic pattern.
The preservation of life is the highest priority. Criminal apprehension and the preservation of property are secondary.
Misdemeanor or property crimes generally do not justify an emergency response.
Officers are not relieved of the obligation to drive with due regard for the safety of all persons. Officers shall drive no faster than reasonably necessary to safely arrive at the scene.
