Can the police follow people way way out of their "jurisdiction"?

Wondering if it is legal for the police to follow you way out of their jurisdiction? With the new laws, do they even have a jurisdiction anymore? A local township cop followed my daughter the other day...into another county which is covered by that county's sheriff dept. then into the city, which is covered by the city police dept. When she got to her destination, he turned around!

She was freaked out by this. He didn't pull her over, but followed right behind her for approx. 15 or so miles!

Thoughts?

I hope she reported it. Police creeps are the most dangerous kind of creeps. Most law enforcement vehicles these days have GPS tracking which records where they've been.

That sounds like he's a psycho cop.

Where I reside, a cop can follow you into a neighboring jurisdiction if they are pursuing you for committing a violation.

There are no "jurisdictions" anymore. Around here, police from neighboring cities can pull people over anywhere, but they usually call it in to the local department, and then local police meet up with them to assist or take over.

So, the answer to your question is "yes".

They are considered "peace officers" so that gets rid of the ole jurisdiction thing. If they believe they are keeping the "peace they can do it where ever they see please

Most cities and counties have agreements with neighboring cities/counties to allow the crossing of jurisdictions.

In most cases they are "cross-deputized." We have a state highway which goes through an Indian reservation, which has its own police force. many people challenge the cops when they get stopped saying they don't have jurisdiction to stop a non-Indian.

The police just laugh.
