My car sustained damage in police pursuit
From: Jerry Farsoun
Dear Victoria Police,
My car was involved in chase as it was stolen and the officers did a great job apprehending the offenders but my vehicle sustained great damage while in pursuit and while stationary as officers damaged all the windows physically with batons and sprayed the vehicle with pepper spray damaging the interior.
I have spoken to my insurance company and they said they can't pay a claim because the damage wasn't caused as a result of a or the theft and it was caused by Police in the line of duty.
I have spoken to the Police and the officer at the station seems to think that it's my insurance companies issue to resolve.
Seems as though no one wants to help resolve this issue and I'd hate for it to become a public spectacle of the innocent getting the raw end of the deal.
Where in the Police can I speak to someone to help get my car fixed?
