  • Effects of Electronic Stability Control on the Pursuit Intervention Technique
    As electronic stability control systems have been developing, questions have emerged among researchers and practitioners of law enforcement regarding the impact of these technologies on the use of pursuit intervention techniques.

    To date, a few formal and informal studies have been conducted to examine the impact of the electronic stability control technology  on the Pursuit Intervention Technique (PIT).  Some have been conducted using computer modeling of the vehicles and others have utilized physical vehicles and live application of the Pursuit Intervention Technique (PIT).  These studies have provided the groundwork for this current study, which is attached, which seeks to further explore the various findings and questions developed from previous work.  This study was conducted in collaboration between the Portland Police Bureau Training Division, the Oregon Department of Public Safety Standards and Training, the Lake Oswego Police Department, the Oregon State Police, Marion County Sheriff’s Office, and the Washington County Sheriff’s Office.  The study was shared at the ALERT Conference earlier this month and we thought you might find the results of interest and have attached a copy of the study.
