Bexar County Sheriff's Office changing pursuit policy to protect residents
There are major changes coming in the Bexar County Sheriff's Office pursuit policy. Sheriff Javier Salazar said that the district attorney is in the process of reviewing a draft of his revisions.
In January, the sheriff formed the SCOPE team (Sheriff and Citizens Organized for Public Engagement), which is made up of community members and deputies. Sheriff Salazar says that they created a draft with the purpose of making the pursuit policy more clear and concise. The draft reduced the 14-page document to nine pages. The last revision to the policy was in 2014.
