Since the crash in December, many on social media have been critical of police chases that risk the well-being of innocent people and now the Duson Police say that they are reviewing their pursuit policy.

A committee has been formed to review the current policy and those on it will offer suggestions to Chief Kip Judice on how they can alter vehicle pursuits in the future.
