    We've noticed a huge increase in rants and negative posts that revolve around agencies going to encryption due to the broadcasting of scanner audio on the internet. It's now worn out and continues to be the same recycled rants. These rants hijack the threads and derail the conversation. They no longer have a place anywhere on this forum other than in the designated threads in the Rants forum in the Tavern.

    If you violate these guidelines your post will be deleted without notice and an infraction will be issued. We are not against discussion of this issue. You just need to do it in the right place. For example:

What was the reason for the pursuit and why would OCPD deny assistance and the provide unsolicited assistance later? I guess if an OCPD units needs OHP they won't forget this. Is the LT a political appointee?

Watch the news tonight...

I guess since the chase was going thru city streets and OHP already was involved, they decided to let OHP have it to limit the number of cars involved in the chase.

That's exactly right. New pursuit engagement rules came into play almost two years ago.

The first thing that happens is, a managing supervisor is advised and put directly in charge. That supervisor starts asking a bunch of questions about traffic, charges, road conditions, etc. Air One is then called. Once Air One gets on scene, ALL ground units back off.

OR

Once the pursuit travels onto an interstate, OHP gets involved and almost all OCPD units are told to back off and go back into service.

...my point is, once these new rules of engagement were put into place, supervisors have strick rules they have to follow. Those rules did not allow for OCPD to assist OHP in the actual pursuit. They did however, assist with stop sticks and with paralleling the pursuit to assist on the ground if/when the pursuit ended. So, it wasn't that he was thumbing his nose at OHP. He was assisting in ways that his rules allowed for him to assist.
