Abstract

Precious little research on law violators who fled from the police has previously been conducted or reported. The only research findings available were generated from official records and included limited descriptive characteristics. These data from police records were based on the pursuing officers' reports and lacked information from suspects who had escaped. This neglect of the suspects' perspective of pursuit limited our understanding of pursuit as a police tactic. This article explored the law violators' perspective and added their attitudes and beliefs into the knowledge base concerning pursuit.
