CRCL opened complaints alleging violations of civil rights or civil liberties resulting from incidents related to vehicle pursuits by CBP employees. Complaints alleged that CBP personnel unnecessarily engaged in vehicle pursuits at high rates of speeds that are unwarranted given the alleged crime(s), deployed vehicle immobilization devices (VID) or controlled tire deflation devices (CTDD), or pursuit intervention techniques (PIT) potentially leading to serious injury or death to suspect vehicle occupants. The purpose of this memorandum is to notify CBP of the complaints, describe those allegations, and inform CBP that CRCL retained these complaints for investigation.
