SHEBOYGAN, WI (WHBL) - If you ever wanted to see how local law enforcement uses a Pursuit Intervention Technique to end a vehicle chase, you now have your chance.  The Sheboygan Police Department made public Wednesday dash camera video of how one of their squad vehicles performed this maneuver recently.

The PIT was used during a slow car chase between law enforcement and a vehicle on County Road U northeast of Waldo.  When the vehicle failed to stop, the squad vehicle used the controlled contact to force the struck vehicle to lose control and go off the road.  This allowed officers to take the driver into custody with little damage to both vehicles.

The video is online at the Sheboygan Police’s webpage and YouTube page.  A link to the video is below
