(KNSI) - A new high speed chase warning system is now available for law enforcement agencies and the public.
Pursuit Alert allows the public to be alerted when they are in close proximity to dangerous high-speed chases. A county in South Carolina is currently the only area in the world to be using it.
Citizens are able to download an app for iPhones and Androids that will alert them when a high speed pursuit is within a two mile radius of them.
Sauk Rapids Police Chief Perry Beise believes this system will be beneficial in that it will create a high-level of awareness for drivers of dangerous situations near them. He also says the Twin Cities Metro Area may see more use for the app as they experience more of these pursuits on average.
