Body camera footage released by Norwood Police shows the tense moments following a police pursuit on Sunday that wound through Downtown Cincinnati and ended in a crash in South Fairmount, injuring five people.
Norwood Police said the pursuit started at Victory Parkway and Sherman Avenue Sunday evening.
The chase quickly changed jurisdictions as the driver in a silver van ran northbound on Interstate 75, heading toward the Harrison Avenue exit. A Norwood officer ran the plate, and the van came up as stolen..
The Hamilton County Police Chiefs Association is taking a look right now at coming up with a standard procedure that focuses on arresting suspects without the need for a high speed pursuit which can put civilians lives at risk and, if a pursuit is necessary, for each department to follow the same protocols.
