"Both Tobin and Squire pursue and the chase eventually ends with Squire’s vehicle pulling up alongside the stolen truck and using a PIT manoeuvre to stop the vehicle. A PIT (precision immobilization technique) manoeuvre is when the driver of a police vehicle comes up behind a vehicle being pursued and taps the front end of the police vehicle against the rear corner of the vehicle being pursued, forcing the driver of the vehicle being pursued to spin out of control."
I've witnessed this successful tactic many times.
If the Force doesn't approve of its use, how did the Member learn the tactic?
Police experts explain the PIT and offer a demonstration video.
"The precision immobilization technique (PIT) has been in law enforcement use since the 1980s. PIT is unquestionably an effective tool for ending vehicle pursuits, but not without controversy. A well-executed PIT deployment usually results in the pursued vehicle spinning out to a stop, followed by the arrest of a dazed driver."
