Department Receives PursuitSAFETY’s ‘Safer Way Award’

The Dallas Police Department was recognized today, October 2, 2012, at the International Association of Chiefs of Police (IACP) Conference in San Diego, California, during the Highway Safety Awards Breakfast. The Safer Way Award was accepted by Deputy Chief Randall Blankenbaker on behalf of the department.

PursuitSAFETY is a national nonprofit public safety organization that was founded in June of 2007. The organization was created to prevent tragedies and to save the lives of innocent bystanders, as well as police officers, in vehicular police response calls and police chases.

PursuitSAFETY honored the department for the lifesaving tactical apprehension policy and training designed to provide officers with a legitimate sanctioned methodology for apprehending offenders without a vehicular pursuit. The Highway Safety committee judged nominations which were submitted on their website. For more information on PursuitSAFETY, visit their website at
