Shooting at moving vehicles
In 2018, we published an item relating to shooting at moving vehicles (Link here: Shooting at 
moving vehicles.) It is timely to republish that article as it has become even more relevant in 
recent times with increased gang tensions and media speculation and sensationalism 
around police actions. 
As our 2018 publication outlines, international and local evidence, international research, 
and policy in some major US states – as well as our own policy – make it clear that police 
should almost never consider shooting at moving vehicles. Not only do shots at vehicles 
seldom achieve a practical purpose, but also, the risks to innocent people are extreme—as 
highlighted in the article.  
Situations in which terrorists use vehicles to run down and kil  people might justify shooting. 
However, even then, unless the driver (the actual threat), can clearly be targeted for 
incapacitation, there is lit le point in just firing at a vehicle. 
In any other situation, shooting at moving vehicles is dif icult to justify and the risks are 
simply too great. 
Please—keep yourselves safe; keep the public safe; don’t shoot at moving vehicles. 
Keep your colleagues safe; share your experiences.
