Fun pursuit, great job calling it, nice driving skills and best of all of the outcome, no officers injured. Now for tactical errors, I noticed the few mistakes which could have changed the outcome. The main two mistakes were pursuing to close for the high rate of speed and rushing up to the vehicle. Following to close doesn't give you time to react. When the suspect vehicle took the turn, the primary unit over shot the turn/vehicle. The other problem was the Trooper running up to the suspect vehicle without cover and without back up covering next to him. In tactical situations, remember the saying "one is none and two is one". In addition, drive the unit up towards the suspect vehicle. Give yourself cover and close the distance. The scariest moment is at the termination of a pursuit is not keeping yourself under control. See the suspect hands first. Have them exit and come to you. Why rush up to the vehicle? This is only my opinion and how I teach my rookies and personnel. God Bless.

I don't pretend to know much about cars, but if that is a red Cadillac, they arrested the wrong people. The Caddy is gone down the road. Anyway, beside for that, you could plainly hear the Officer say,"Please exit the vehicle." Been there-Done that! Good job!
