A Richmond church leader's death during a high-speed police chase has prompted the city's mayor to call for a summit on such pursuits.
Mayor Dwight C. Jones says protocols for police chases need to be addressed.
Forty-four-year-old Anthony L. Taylor was killed March 24 when a vehicle fleeing Henrico County police hit his pickup truck a mile inside Richmond's city limits.
Jones requested the summit in a letter sent Tuesday to Henrico police Col. Henry W. Stanley Jr.
Stanley and Henrico County Manager Virgil R. Hazelett said Wednesday they will cooperate with the mayor's request. But they say the county already has a policy on most of the points raised by Jones.
