The Act specifies the conditions under which a pursuing law enforcement official can be held liable for causing or contributing to damages, injury, or death caused by a fleeing suspect. The Act establishes that the officer’s conduct will not be the proximate cause of such injuries, death, or damage unless the officer has acted with reckless disregard for proper law enforcement procedures. The Act also specifies when a suspect can be charged with a felony offense for fleeing or attempting to elude a police officer.
