From "go fast" boats to the latest highway cruisers, see how the police keep the bad guys from getting away.
The high speed chase is one of the most dangerous things a police officer can do. When suspects flee, they endanger their lives, those of the police chasing them, and innocent civilians. Over the years, police have developed many ways to bring the bad guys to justice at a minimum of risk, but the danger will always be there.
MODERN MARVELS® takes to the streets to see the latest high speed pursuit technology in action, showing how police officers use advanced surveillance and communication technologies to help them track suspects. Examine the latest generation of pursuit vehicles, from sophisticated "go-fast" boats used to stop smugglers to the classic highway cruiser. And take to the track for the most intense driver's ed session you'll ever experience--the training that allows officers to stay in control at speeds well over 100 miles per hour.
