GSP holds training at Police department

September 26, 2005

Albany- Half the members of Troop G met for in-service training at the Albany Police department, a central location for all the posts.

The troopers normally attend class in Forsyth, but because of increased gas prices, the trainers are coming to them. Monday's session was a refresher course in chase polices.

"We're talking about the pursuit itself, what type of methods we have to terminate the pursuit, when we need to terminate the pursuit, when do we need to call them off. We call pursuits off all the time when the danger is greater than getting the pursuit stopped at that particular time," says Lt. Sophie Thigpen.

Troopers were also updated on any new case laws that effect chases in their circuit.
