Chuck Sweeny: State Rep. John Cabello introduces Illinois police chase bill

The newspaper ran an editorial posted Feb. 13 urging a common police chase policy for Winnebago and Boone counties. We noted that Winnebago County sheriff's police have increased the number of chases, while the city of Rockford police have stopped chasing anybody, not even a kid pedaling his tricycle too fast.

Well, career police officer and state Rep. John Cabello, R-Machesney Park, is trying to do something about that. He introduced a bill Feb. 1 in the Illinois General Assembly to create statewide standards for police chases. Read the story in the Rockford Register Star.
