My Nonprofit Reviews
Review for PursuitSAFETY, Chico, CA, USA
My 17 year old son Christopher was killed on November 8, 2007 during a police chase that was extremely violent and out of control. In the weeks following, I felt lost and alone with nowhere to turn. One day while researching police chases, I came upon a website called Pursuit Watch that was filled with information on this issue. It was started by Jim Phillips, whose daughter Sarah had been killed by an individual running from police. I was shocked to learn how many innocent people lose their lives from police pursuits in which they had no role. It was there that I found Candy Priano in December 2007. I wrote to her immediately, and she wrote back within days. Since then, she and the members of Pursuit Safety have helped advise and guide me through the most devastating times of my life since losing my son. This organization is filled with compassionate and loving people, all having suffered either injuries or the loss of a loved one from a pursuit or emergency response call. I truly don't believe I would have gotten this far without them. The support and understanding of this exceptional group of people is unparalleled and so needed. I have learned so much from being a part of Pursuit Safety, and will remain committed to this issue throughout the rest of my life, in the hopes that, although I cannot save my son, I can bring awareness and illumination of the dangers of police pursuits. This is a life saving endeavor for all of us affected by this devastating loss. Cheryl Cooper
