The Deschutes County Sheriff’s Office has added mobile spike strips to ten of their vehicles. The Sheriff’s Office says vehicular pursuits create a substantial risk of injury to the public, the deputy and the suspect. The use of MobileSpike offers DCSO another option to lower the risks associated with vehicle pursuits. The spikes allow deputies to act immediately before vehicle speeds increase. MobileSpike is deployed from a moving patrol vehicle with the push of a button, causing a controlled deflation of the suspect’s vehicle tires.
