Police chases up in Nashville

Ian Demsky of The (Nashville) Tennessean used local police data to show that "a record number of police pursuits zipped through Nashville streets last year, even as beefed-up safety measures caused officers to cancel more of the dangerous car chases than ever before." A third of the 269 police chases in 2004 led to some kind of property damage. "While officers and supervisors called off 67 pursuits last year - almost twice as many as they did in 2003 - the number of chases for minor traffic violations, nonviolent crimes and stolen vehicles rose from 153 to 175."
