Tire deflation devices use a variety of mechanical methods to defeat the integrity of a fleeing vehicle's tires in order to release the tire pressure in a predictable, controlled manner. These devices are used by law enforcement personnel to end or prevent high-speed pursuits.
The Focus Group Report and Market Survey Report on Tire Deflation Devices are limited distribution documents, and are available in the SAVER Community on First Responder Communities of Practice (FRCoP).
